    outside the champs AS and Aldo.

    Most Brazilians are not known for their cardio, Rafael dos Anjos however had a monster cardio in his last fight. Arona and Feijao need to be mentioned. Who else?

    i think JDS surviving the last 5 rounds automatically puts him in there.

    Someone who has a combination of extraordinary strength, endurance, speed etc.
    So someone who will do well on a heptathlon in case we speak of an allround athlete

    Young Big Nog, JDS, or Barao (although I guess Barao could be considered a champ, since he is the interim BW champ).

    Erick silva is really explosive. His cardio needs work but he looks like he's shot out of a cannon. And his reflexes are sharp.
