Even if he was to somehow beat Rory and GSP, the last thing I ever want to see is a champ looking like shit in rounds 4 and 5 of a title defence.
Yeah he is the Hendo of WW. I am a fan of both but you need to at least be able to go a normal pace for 4 rounds; almost everyone is slowed down considerably by the fifth. I don't want to see a champion lose the belt because he gasses in the second round. The thing is though he has a decent chance of just braining both guys in the first.

Of course. Even captian cardio - Cain Velasquez - looked a bit wiped out in the 4th and 5th against JDS. But he was still effective and capable and certainly no worse off the JDS. Ellenburger looked dog shit bad in the 3rd against Sanchez. Bad enough to give me utmost confidence that he can *never* win a 5 round decision.

The champs should always be cardio machines. Currently, they all are. Aldo can fade but hes usually done so much damage by then that it doesnt matter, as his opponent is broken.

Mighty Mouse, Bendo and of course Cruz don't gas in the later rounds. Not everyone gasses, which makes Cruz even more impressive considering he cuts a lot and moves the most.

He also doesn't take much damage though and is usually in control. He is impressive but Frankie not gassing in the second Maynard fight in the fifth is the most ridiculous example of great cardio I have ever seen.

Lateral movement back and forth with little action should not gas out anyone who wants to call themselves a pro fighter.

This fight should be great, I'm leaning towards Rory though because I think he has a more well rounded game. Rory by stoppage in the 3rd or by lopsided decision.

I have to agree with you there.

Also, I think Ellenberger will derail the MacDonald vs GSP talk for a little bit.

After thinking about this fight again for a little while, I feel like Rory is going to turn this into a grappling match from the get go and gas Jake out. Rory is a tristar guy, he will probably go the GSP way and minimize the risk. Rory by UD.
