    While amazing martial artists and amazing athletes, many Brazilian fighters seem to tank fast when getting wrestled/grappled for any significant amount of time. Is BJJ cardio dfferent from Wrestling based cardio? I have trained some BJJ and I was gassed after rolling for an hour, what is the difference from training wrestling for an hour?

    Anderson gassed vs. Chael
    Vitor gasses against everyone
    Aldo gassed vs. Hominick
    Cigano tonight
    Silva vs. Fitch

    The list goes on and on. Too much sun, not enough treadmill?

    JDS didn't gas tonight, he got the shit beat out of him. There is a difference. He was out of it after that big punch landed in the first.

    I don't think Brazilians are any more prone to gassing than anyone else that didn't start with amateur wrestling. Wrestling training stresses core strength which allows you to maintain cardio for longer periods of time when pressing the action in grappling. Most people that start wrestling early have greater core strength and therefore more effective cardio.

    Good post, its possible to grapple and do BJJ for an hour, there's always breaks here and there, vying for position, chances to give your cardio a break.

    Try wrestling for an hour, you'd be dead, its incredibly different the cardio you have doing amateur wrestling vs. Bjj or grappling.

    Chael is a wrestler that grinds you to exhaustion
    Aldo had a bad weight cut
    Cain is a wrestler that grinds you to exhaustion
    Fitch is a wrestler that grinds you to exhaustion

    Study the opponents before commenting.

    I'd argue that if anything, Chael gassed in the last round against Anderson. Review the last round again, and notice the outcome. Getting caught like that is often a sign of exhaustion.
