No, those are bad examples. When he looked gassed against Hughes in their initial rematch, that is an example of an out of shape and not motivated Penn.
Condit, GSP, Mike Pierce seemed to have enough against Fitch. Condit went 5 fresh rounds with Diaz. Penn went 1.
It is a 3 round fight dude. I don't care who you are facing. If you think you are still a top fighter you should be able to go 3 rounds vs. anyone. They are no bad examples. He gassed in round 2 vs. Diaz. He gassed the whole 3rd round vs. Fitch. We are talking 3 round fights...not even 5 round main events.
Come on...His cardio sucks...you are being delusional.
