There's others, but that's the first one that came to mind besides the ones you've mentioned.

P.S. Good post, Johnny!
I concur whole heartedly. Eder Jofre's comeback at the age of 37 is probably the most impressive; and to do so against a fighter like Legra, then defend it against Vicente Saldivar is simply mind boggling. Jofre was truly a special fighter.
