I'm a huge fan of this, and have liked the idea of a senior league where this could happen. That way 40+ guys who still have some fight in them can put on a good match or two. Just open up the weight classes a bit, shorten the rounds, and let the Legends go to work.

Randy Couture vs. Mark Coleman would be a good legends match
Randy vs. Rizzo with be a good one to have to see where they stand nowadays.
Mo Smith vs. Chuck Liddell could be nice once Chucks at that age.
Ken Shamrock vs. Royce again.

You could go on all day.

Oops, I actually meant division, not league. Maybe with three weight classes instead of five, being as cutting weight at 40+ years old has to be brutal.

I really want to see Severn fight and see what the old man has left in his tank. All he fights is cans now, so I would like to see how he does against some old school competition.

The way PRIDE is set up, they seem to bring in a lot of over the hill fighters to come in and bang

I know he's been fighting for a long time, but Rizzo's only 34...

And I think I will wait and see how I like the Mo / Ruas fight before I will say one way or the other...

I know it's hard to let go some of the greats, because of all the wars and memories, and these guys are all competitors to the end... But I think this might be a recipe for the first serious injury or worse in MMA...

And it we if it does go down, we shouldn't let Randy join till he's at least 55... It just wouldn't be fair

It'd be a lot better than putting the guys that wanna keep going against present top tiers. Ken against Tito? 2 & 3 ? Doesnt' make sense, and Tito's onlys arguably top tier nowadays. And yeah, Randy's age means nothing.

I think it would be awsome if zuffa wouldpromote some of the "old salts" in ledgends matches. That is if those fighters are still willing, i would LOVE to see like bas v. ken, or randy v. ken (there are others besides ken LOL).

What do you think or who would u like to see?



i would like all the legends that ken thinks disrespected him to come and kick his butt.
