At 47 years old, there are many people and state athletic commissions that would say Rodney “Sledge Hammer” Guignet is too old to fight in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). But like the last Rocky movie, Guignet does not let that stop him. In August 2011, he brought home the Barbarian Fight Club Light Heavyweight Title from Virginia. At that fight, his opponent, who was about half his age, took Guignet for granted. Guignet proved him wrong by finishing the fight in the first round with a north-south choke submission. After his impressive and devastating victory, he earned the respect of a lot of fighters in the Virginia area and many were afraid to fight him, so he has never been asked back to defend his title there.
