70 yr. old MMA fighter breaks Guinness W.R.

This is cool. The guy's name is Dr. John Williams. He has many life accomplishments but the one I thought was most amazing was his strongman feat of a one-arm 500lb deadlift by the age of 23!

Dr. John Williams: 70-Yr-Old MMA Fighter Setting Guinness World Records WFS

This article was written prior to the fight (24 July, Sat.)

The old man won over his 49yo opponent.

"Jon Williams def. Justin Bourgeois by Arm Bar (verbal tapout) at 4:21 of the 1st round"

A true example for all of us... I especially like what he says about training in the interview, and his general perspective on life! This is a truly wise elder.
