it's a shame when two accomplished and famous MMA'ers like the rua brothers keep fighting in to relative middle age. i keep hoping that they retire and stay involved in the sport by running their own gyms / dojos / coaching, but neither has probably made remotely the kind of money that their contemporaries in other sports did. that's one large factor, anyway.
