I want to build a statistical models of combat athletes based on various performance parameters, then compare 2 combat athletes facing each to assess which one is more likely to win based on those parameters.

I would also like to weight the performance parameters by factors like the age of the athlete.

How would i go about doing this?

Hello,

That depends on the variable that measures the outcome of a game. Let’s assume, for example, that for each game you record whether an athlete won or not (binary variable). At this case, you can use a logistic regression to predict the probability of a victory using as explanatory variables the chararistics of the athlete and its opponent. An example of a logistic regression model is available here.
