Those fuckers are in good shape. Better, I would wager, than 99% of your MMA and kickboxing guys.

he said it right there.....thats what makes getting in shape for MMA harder since there is so much more to train for, grappling and standup cardio are two different worldsCANADIANFIGHTCLUB said:stand up shape and ground "in shape" are DIFFRENT!!!

HUH?? They are two totally different worlds mma guys work more on everything boxing trainers work more on one specific thing ect this is where we come to the question of if a mma guru was to switch to boxing which would win.. And we all know what would happen the other way round..wildcard_seven said:How so? Stand up shape and ground shape are different? So if I squat, run, do pushups, jump rope that won't translate to good shape in either field? Ricky Hatton is going to get wore out rolling on the mat with me? WTF ever. Yes you need to have specific training, but at higher levels, good shape is just good fucking shape. So a A level kickboxer like Mirko Crocop had to drastically alter his training so he could keep his wind with his training partners on the mat? His awesome conditioning shriveled up like superman exposed to kryptonite on the floor? If anything thats a rest compared to the constant pace he had to keep in K-1=the key is are you comfortable being on the ground, otherwise you will be tensing muscles unecessarily. You don't need to go out and do grappling pushups, jiujitsu squats, and judo running to get in shape for groundwork.
