    I know Jan is famous for this bad cardio, but I think he improved it. First it seems to me like he was quite nervous in the first minutes, which depletes your cardio fast. But if you look at his significant strikes: 97 out of 191 landed. That's crazy high, even for lighter devision. I looked at the last 5 events and only 3 fighters landed more than 97 significant strikes and these fighters were fighting at 115, 135 and 145 pounds.

    He's getting better at picking his shots. Managing his energy as McDuck would say.
    Jan's really growing on me. Dude hasn't stayed stagnant, and is trying to improve.

    Jimi seems to have been figured out as well. You need to have a certain physicality and set of skills to pull it off, but I think more of the guys at the top are going to figure this out.
