    Those guys put on a serious amount of muscle mass outside of Stipe and Romero. and Stipe has good cardio for a HW. and Romero is a freestyle wrestler which is less cardio intensive than folkstyle.

    He's been through a lot? Who's fucking fault is that? And he's LUCKY he's getting a second chance. I don't give 2 shits how good he gets and I know it doesn't really matter what I think but I'll never watch him fight.

    It's actually closer to 7 seconds and then 25 second play clock in between plays.

    Stipe has some of the best cardio in HW. Dude beat down Ngannou for 5 rounds. Weidman's cardio is fine. Gaethje doesn't even wrestle, and despite that his cardio is fine considering his output. Woodley and Romero aren't bad in that department either.

    Who would've thought that endurance was sport specific? Oh wait, everyone knew that, except for you apparently.

    Greg hardy himself said that he's never met guys that have gas like MMA guys have while working like they do.

    I don't think people realize how athletic alot of the athletes we have are in mma in the way they can move their body naturally and push a high pace with alot of explosive stuff mixed in. Alot of athletes would lopk pretty terrible in yhe cage, it takes alot of unique attributes.

    Hoping he does well in MMA

    If wrestling is so demanding physically and mentally they should be doing circles around guys who aren't wrestlers.

    Perhaps Cain is the only wrestler known for having great cardio.

    you can have great cardio but not pace yourself properly as a result of not following your game plan, adrenaline, whatever. It's as much mental as it is physical

    An NFL guy is basically a 10 sec sprinter throwing a ball around,, he can't do anything woodley can do and would get wrecked.

    If you want to make a fair comparison , now show me a clip of woodley wrestling with that guy or exchanging overhand rights together, otherwise you are showing a foot ball athlete that sprints for a living with huge breaks that can't hang with real sprinters/runners.

    Hardy hasn't played an NFL down since 2015. He looked pretty soft compared to his football days tbh

    MMA isn't like the NFL where you have strict guidelines set by your teams strength and conditioning coaches what your minimum workout regiment needs to entail to stay employed. You can do as much, or as little, as you feel like as an MMA fighter. You're an independent contractor. If you want to skip leg day you can do it.

    For all the "OMG NFL superman" hyperbole, hes basically a big, slightly chubby dude who moves fairly well for his size and has heavy hands. Impressive for a beginner? yes, levels above other guys athletically (at least in an MMA environment)? no, even by the relatively low athletic standards of the HW scene.

    I tried but I couldn't like it. its just not fluid enough. they play for 5 seconds and stop for 20s, it's really annoying. I will keep watching MMA and casually watching eu football. americans are lucky that today is starting the premier sports event in the world. they can actually see A level athletes playing

    they require to sprint for 5~10s. these short bursts. that's the whole sport basically. while football players have to endure 90 min of play almost nonstop

    https://www.runnersworld.com/runners-stories/a20805366/the-distance-run-per-game-in-various-sports/

    european football players run many more miles compared to the NFL ones. also, as this article says, in the 3 hours (?) of a game, the ball only runs for 11 min
