    Now i guess we won’t be able to answer that question now can we. The older, more experienced fighter in dan henderson blew out a knee and won’t be able to go, and jon jones, the talented younger fighter declined to fight a worn out chael sonnen. Well joe i think we’ll leave that debate open for now. Or we can settle that discussion with a more appropriate matchup with anderson the spider silva (age/experience) vs jonny bones jones (youth/talent). Clearly the fight of the century. Screw paquiao vs mayweather, i wanna see this fight go down.

    I’m gonna go with youth for just now …. I think (9/10) times youth takes it ….

    -Nog vs Bader and vs Davis are good examples.

    However I also think how the sport has developed so fast has left the so called ‘experienced’ guys behind and you could even say the experienced guys and less experienced than the young guys in terms of modern MMA mainly due to the influence of wrestling on the sport in recent years

    I also see the factor that in the odd instance like GSP who is experienced but has used it and learned how to adapt his game perfectly.

    i dont know how i new, but i new to stop the video right after joe rogan said “that is the big conundrum.”

  4. Sting says:

    A lot of times youth will beat experience, specially when you’re as talented and physically gifted as jones, but the spider is a 37 year old athlete whose still at the top of his game and clearly on a whole different level as most fighters so it should be an intriguing matchup to say the least. Do we see a passing of the torch or does the spider give bones a reality check. This fight needs to happen sooner that later.

  5. Zack says:

    It doesn’t matter youth or experience. It’s all about heart and determination.

  6. Sting says:

    Oh definitely you have to have heart, but sometimes it’s just not enough, just ask dan hardy when he fought gsp for the welterwieght belt. Gsp was a more complete and better conditioned athlete physically and mentally, which by the way comes with years of trying to evolve and improve as a fighter.

  7. The natural says:

    Youth. All day

  8. 123 says:

    depends on the fighter, but youth is taking over.

  9. R4J4 says:

    Joe rogan is full of shit, the guy chats shit

  10. ernesto hoost says:

    i think rogan smokes alot of weed and just over thinks alot of things.
