    Khabib has crazy cardio because he tranes ufc in the mountains, now keep in mind that the highest mountains in Dagestan isn't even half as tall as the Himalayas, base camp alone on the hymalaya is at 5,380 meters which is way taller than any mountain in Dagestan. The sherpas have ungodly conditioning, toughness and endurance due to their extremely high altitude adaptation, they would outcardio and outlast the shit outta everyone.

    With a few months of striking and grappling they would be champion material imho.

    Aren't snow climate people also naturally more blubbery? That would be a significant disadvantage when fighting at a set weight class.

    Sea level Sherpa. Sounds chill as hell.

    But then if that became a trend, we'd have to start hearing what if stories about sherpa level Cain.

    I think Ant-Man could be champ in 15 minutes of training (basically to learn the rules) because his limbs are to small to submit him.Try getting an armbar on antman!
