If things go according to plan, former UFC champion Randy Couture won't be the only well-conditioned wrestler in his forties defying conventional logic.

UFC and IVC veteran Mike Van Arsdale (8-5), at 43 years old, recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he is eying a comeback after two-and-a-half years away from fighting.

"You're getting older and stuff, and you kind of want to let it go," Van Arsdale said. "But I didn't let it go because I always thought, 'I've got to set the record straight here. I lost some fights I shouldn't have lost.'"

Yeah I thought Arsdale said this a couple of months ago, but I guess he had to switch camps first, then get back to fighting.

It seems like the most logical thing to do. But switching from Greg Jackson's to Lion's Den isn't going to do much for his own fighting career. However, he should be helping bring a lot of other talent to the for-front of mma.
