Re: UFC of today vs. UFC Classics
Here's another one for you guys:
The old UFC tough ones, like Royce Gracie, Pat Smith, ken Shamrock, Tank Abbott, Dan Severn all in their prime with their own fighting style Vs. the New UFC fighters like GSP, BJ Penn, Rampage, Chuck Liddell etc. Do you feel that the old fighters in their prime would have a chance against the newer fighters of today regardless of the rules an regulations or maybe lack there of?
It is almost a tough call, but i would be inclined to believe the new fighters of today would have more of an edge only because of their ground game. The only concern i would have with the older fighters is really their experience and physical toughness, however the new fighters are a lot stronger. I guess there is that old age saying
The young fear the old because of their experience, but the old fear the young because of their fierceness.
