It's annoying for us fans when fighters decide to wait, but I guess I understand it. The only thing that makes think they should take a fight is, if they win they still get the shot, and if they lose well they probably were not going to win the title anyway.

You are not getting it. Do a fighting based workout for 25 minutes, running, bags, pads, weights, grappling etc. 5 minute rounds, gets a sweat going but no problem.

Do that while a Shogun or Hendo punch you in the head, kick your ribs, kick your legs and take you down, I'll bet you don't complete the routine.

Shogun took minimal damage in the first Machida fight and looked ready to go again, that was 5 rounds. He took massive damage against Hendo so yes looked sluggish, but to control the latter half of the fight and keep attacking as he did... Requires fitness.

MMA is becoming home to more and more gifted athletes, and the requirement for fitness grows all the time. Nobody is going to look athletic in a fight like that though. The lighter weights do, but their dealing with much less firepower.

^ that's true. Shogun took massive damage in the Jones fights and looked so slow. Frankie in his 1st round of Maynard 2-3 looked slugish after taking punishment. Of course he got his cardio back in round 2-3.
