Cardio performance can drop quite rapidly when not maintained and go back to base levels. However, you can also build it up from scratch quite fast.

Unlike strength which is built very slowly but causes permanent changes in your body so that even when you've had a long layoff and is considerably weaker the body will actually rebuild you to your former level quite fast.

but when a fighter has a long layoff, he is no longer desensitized to the "octagon jitters"
i was thinking this too. it might just be the adrenaline dump that creates the gassing. ive heard people say that if you are regularly active and fighting in competitions you get better at handling the adrenaline of the fight. i think thats why some mma guys still compete in gi and no gi bjj competitions to keep the fight exposure up while not risking the same injury as a cage fight.

It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena... who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
