Well, Klingons do not have an average longer life span than Humans... average is calculated not by the biological lifespan capacities, but rather how long they actually live. Since most die in combat, that reduces their lifespan calculations.

Worf is old because he rarely, if ever loses in physical combat. He's also a King maker. He killed Duras, paving the way for Gowron, then killed Gowron some time later. He has killed many Klingons, Borg and Jem'Hadar in close quarter combat. Let him have his own special hair. He's a special man.

It is debated, but apparently he let Martok best him in combat. In fact, the only time (alternative timeline wise) that I've seen him killed in close quarter combat was when he was assassinated, by being stabbed, in the back on the council floors.
