    DC, Jones, Whittaker, Usman, Khabib, Holloway, (formerly TJ), Cejudo.

    They all seem to demonstrate super-human cardio and the ability to push a strong pace. Can you remember a fight any of these guys seemed to gas out?

    Have seen Khabib slow down, but never really seen any of them completely gas out. You're right though, good cardio is a must if you're going to possibly be fighting 5 rounds.

    Nunes apparently has somewhat of a reputation of gassing out. Not Rose tho. Not as far as I know.

    Makes it more impressive that someone like Aldo was able to be champ for so long when cardio was not his forte.

    Yeah but she doesn't have endless cardio either. We've seen her get tired.

    He was like Woodley, he either finished the fight fast or was able to control the pace of the fight. His leg kicks in the early days also had an effect on his opponents mobility.

    They are UFC champions. Also Khabib doesn't set an endless pace either, we've seen him slow down and have to take a break from wrestling.

    Out of all of them, Khabib is the most monsterious due to his pressure. IT takes so much toll to do what he does

    Usman is great too but Usman layed on top while Khabib grabs and pulls opponents like MJ, Barboza and Al. Imagine pulling 70kg repeatedly

    It is not much that champs all have great cardio because that is by default. It is just that if there is a champ who gasse like Woodley or Conor then they are the odd ones out

    Every fighter should have great cardio for 5 rounds and be ready for war

    Of course they count. They're champions, whether you like it or not.
    I'm pretty sure Valentina has no problem with that.

    He’s not the champ anymore but Woodley was always criticized for having a bad gas tank. Nunes too.

    They’re all on steroids but just saying

    Back then Aldo wrestled a lot as well and his cardio still held up.

    No TS, they arent all on drugs like TJ. Girl fights are shit, Khabib has cardio issues, because it takes effort to smash skulls for 25 minutes. At least he isn't going full GSP. Sleeping in guard for a full 25

    Women and men are both in the UFC. Women aren't in the NBA.
