    Hardy couldn't catch his breath after the fight that lasted 57 seconds and consisted of a few exchanges on the feet.
    What would've happened had he been in a wrestling-heavy three round bout. It woulda been Dada 5000 level of gassing.
    Some sherdoggers don't understand that athleticism is sport specific. Put an Olympic wrestler in a swimming pool and see how long he can keep up with an Olympic swimmer. Put the swimmer on a wrestling mat and he's gonna gas in a few minutes.
    How fast you can run a 40-yard dash is irrelevant for fighting.
    Roy nelson would gas Hardy out in an mma fight, and Big Country probably needs about 2 minutes to complete a 40-yard dash.

    People keep going on about him being an 'A level athlete' but American Football plays for like 30 seconds a time at best, wouldn't be surprised if his gas tank is shit.

    Yeah this is what it seemed like to me

    He's been through kind of a lot and now he's got a chance at a second career on a big stage. That's a lot on his shoulders already, then you add in the fact he just won a fight in a minute by KO.

    It's like some people here are actually machines and emotions don't exist for them

    not surprising. he's a fucking NFL guy, these guys sprint for like 5s just to have to rest 20s right afterwards. their sport doesn't require great cardio

    Hardy was all state in track and basketball.

    I think he'll figure it out.

    I played nose tackle and offensive tackle in high school...played both ways and special teams at 300 lbs.

    Anyone whos played organized football knows how much running you do IN PRACTICE EVERYDAY, carrying 20 lbs of equiptment and a 5 pound helmet on your head...usually followed by sprints AFTER PRACTICE.

    Id love to watch a UFC fighter work the heavybag in a football gear.

    It's a different type of cardio. To say it doesnt require great cardio is foolish. You act like soccer players sprint for 90 minutes straight.

    Is it too much for someone who has never put it in the line to understand how much anxiety takes away from performance.

    I also did the same, and weighed over 300 easy in high school (215 now, thank god).

    Football doesn't require shit for cardio. Not even fucking close. 10 seconds of action (at most), 35-40 seconds of rest depending on when your part of the play is over.

    I did wrestling after football and it was worlds apart. Football is easy. It requires physical attributes and practice at certain skills, but it's easy as fuck. Wrestling is perhaps the most physically/mentally demanding activity we've created as a species. Every practice was torture.

    He's become a fat ass since moving to MMA. Clearly not taking it nearly as seriously as he took football.

    And yet we have so many wrestlers in the UFC who aren't known for their cardio. Romero, Woodley, Weidman, Stipe, Gaethje...

    Are you telling me that a 264 lb HW doesn't have the cardio of Mighty Mouse?
