The 9-Year Rule Rears Its Ugly Head

Here’s something I need to point out:

  • Scott Smith has been fighting for 10 years.
  • Robbie Lawler has been fighting for 10 years.
  • Marloes Coenen has been fighting for 10 years.
  • Fedor Emelianenko has been fighting for 11 years.
  • These fighters are a combined 4-11 since reaching the respective 9-year mark of their careers.

And somehow, Dan Henderson continues to defy the 9-Year Rule. Now in his 15th year of fighting, Henderson is simply winning fights at a career stage that is unprecedented in major MMA history.
