Has never grappled in their life.. You have no fucking clue about MMA either.
Agreed for the most part. Grappling really does take quite a bit out of you however. I have wrestled for the last four years, trained BJJ for the last six and compete in track and field and cross country internationally and would say that I was not impressed by the cardio I saw tonight.
My first day on the mats was easy for me to transition into, but those that think that moving around 200 lb bodies is easy are gravely mistaken.
TS is wrestling his couch cushions as we speak! 3rd round sub!
I train at Toshido MMA Kelowna, I roll 3-5 times a week when I'm not away for work, I would expect a world champion to be able to go more than 1 round.
did someone say.......grapple?
Most of us have no idea how physically demanding a MMA fight is. But even the dumber posters among us have the ability to watch a large number of fights, and then compare the level of cardio displayed in one fight against the level of cardio displayed in all the others.
The cardio displayed in Leben-Brunson was bad, compared to most fights.
The cardio displayed in JDS-Velasquez was average at best, compared to most fights.
This is the method most of us use to analyze MMA. And for the most part, it works pretty well. So relax.
JDS cardio was not the issue...he got rocked and never recovered. His brain shut down on him and he was fighting on pure instinct and heart.
Do you even lift?
Rolling and fighting are 2 completely different things.
lol do u think you have anywhere near the cardio cain or for that matter JDS have, like even in the same stratosphere?
This is pretty much the perfect response. Well said, and I agree.
Go 100% full bore with punches kicks elbows takedowns for 5 mins next time. That's called fighting....not training!!!!
