    Yeah. Diaz, Condit, and GSP have probably the three best gas tanks in all of MMA, past and present.

    I think what puts Diaz ahead of those guys by a margin is the fact he blazes up regularly and still does triathlons and championship bouts :')

    I don't know about each weight class but Guida for the first few years of his UFC career had cardio that blew my mind. The guy doesn't slow down.

    initially I thought Jones was a strange pick for LHW but looking through the division it seems like a solid choice. Although I would say Rashad and Gustasson are at least on par with him considering both went a hard 5 rounds with him

    Anthony Pettis arguably has the best cardio in the business, his famous kick happened with about a minute and a half left in the fifth round of a grueling and fast-paced fight. His cardio is insane.
