I do not know a lot about Skip Hall but from what I understand he is in his 60's and fights professionally. I do not think I could hit a man that age in a competitve prearranged bout. I was in a self defense arena once with a man that age and I would've choked the holy snot out of him if he did not back down. However in a mma bout? Could not do it. I was brought up to respect my elders and it would be almost impossible to duke it out. Not to mention that I could not seriously train for a fight like this and that may well get me killed or hurt badly. No disrespect intended to Skip whom I look up to admirably. I could grapple an elder and I have been tapped by guys in thier 50's. Grappling chicks, no problem. Couldnt fight a 60 year old.

If you knew Skip Hall and saw the shape this man is in for his age you would think differently. Skip is an exception to the age rule, at 60 years of age Skip routinely benches 405lbs and trains wrestling, bjj, and his stand up 5 times a week if not more. Besides being in tremendous physical condition Skip has a fighters mentality and the heart of a lion. It was an honor to meet him at the last Reality Combat Show and get to know more about him. The look he had walking into the cage was that of a warrior. I wish Skip luck in all of his future bouts! Here is a picture of Skip entering the cage at Reality Combat: Duel in the Delta. Thanks to Peter Lockley for the phenomenal picture.

I saw that he is possibly going to train with Pat Miletich. I think he'll continue to improve!

I would not fight Skip Hall Although, not for the reasons stated...instead simply because he would likely beat my ass.

I don't understand the controversy here. Maybe skip should dye his hair to a different color so people will only see his 30 year old body.

I would be honored to fight skip. He is a great competitor, a pioneer in our sport, and a showman with more dedication to this sport than probably 90% of the fighters out there.

People gain years and loose years all the time in this world. There are 40 year olds who look and feel 60/70, its the paths you choose in life. Diet, exersize, and dedication can take years off of your life, this is the category that Skip Hall falls in, not the 60 year olds. Skip is, I'll say 42. Yes there are medical facts about age, but if you have taken good care of your body what makes you fall in the steriotyped category.(60) Fact, yea he has been walking this earth for 60 years but he's not your judgement of what most people think of when you say the word sixty. This guy is dedicated with his diet, exersize, training ect. The man treats himself to one donut after he fights, that is his reward, one donut. But back to dedication the next day. Alot of fighters get shitfaced. Like CharlesFFA said that "he is probally in better shape than 90% of the fighter out there", accurate assumption. I agree 100%. Dont look at this as a no win situation, hes out there to f-you up and a 'True Warrior' wants the same out of you. Skip is a True Warrior and has a Lady Warrior keeping on a heathy path. Much respects to the Halls, great metting you two, people will question, debate,ect. You guys know were your at, know were you been, that 60 number gets people amazed, myself included until I met Skip, shit he aint 60, lol... respects, Justin Reinhardt

I agree with Piggle and Lawdy. The story of Skip is one of the most badass things I've ever heard. ttt To answer the topic, no I wouldn't fight him because I'm 19 and just starting. That old man would whoop my sorry ass.

ditto to amorphous minus two years. Skip had quoted a song to me once, 'never lsow down, never grow old,' or somethin like that. To me that pretty much sums it up for now

Anybody who knows their MMA knows Skip is no token novelty, hes here to fight. He's been fighting before most of us, and will probably be fighting after many stop. Like Sally says, he's a guy who fights, wins some, loses some, but always, always, keeps it on the line. If you're a 205 pounder around his level/rep in the game, what the hell. No reason not to fight

I can't believe there is even a controversy over this, honestly. 60 is just a number, and it obviously hasn't stopped Skip Hall from kicking ass.

I would fight him, I don't think I want to get hit by him, but I would fight him... The first time I saw him I thought he was maybe 45.. The guy is in incredible shape. I hope I look and feel that good when I'm 60. I also hope I can pull hot chicks like lawdymama ; )
