1) Being punched in the face knocks confidence, which decreases performance. This is not applicable to everyone.
2) Anyone who can get punched by Hendo for 15 minutes then give it back for 10 more is either in amazing shape or abnormally tough and in good shape. Or both very tough and very well conditioned. I do not believe Shogun has been well prepared for all of his fights.
3) Rampage is a legend and was a great fighter. If you disagree that's fine but... Kinda weird. Where were you going with this anyway?
Confidence has nothing to do with cardio so I don't know why you say that, shogun only gave it back to hendo because hendo punched himself out and remarkably gassed even more than shogun due to the beating he gave him and thus was easier than dan hardy against gsp to take down so again not good conditioning, and i'll concede that some think page is a legend we all have our opinions on that even though I don't understand what significant things he has done in comparision with unanimously named legends like fedor and anderson.
