Fact - Vitor Belfort didn't gas after four rounds of getting elbowed to hell against a much larger Jon Jones.

Fact - Michael Bisping gassed against Mayhem Miller not too long ago. In the first round no less.

These are the facts. And I'd wager Vitor's cardio outlasts Bisping's.
People are listening to Rogan too much, I'm sure Bisping's in shape and his cardio is pretty good but it all goes back to the Sonnen fight, many people believe that you should do something with a takedown and then you combine that with Rogan going "Michael Bisping is the most underrated guy in the UFC." and "Chael Sonnen needs to finish this fight in order to win." Then you go watch the Stann fight and you hear about his heart rate and his cardio. People get mesmerized by what they're hearing and they buy into it.

In order for cardio to come into play he needs to avoid Vitor's onslaught, something I'm not totally convinced he can do.
