GSP vs. Fitch - will cardio be a factor?

since most of us don't see either guy finishing the other, do you think the fighter with better cardio will play a huge role in the later rounds?

If so, who do you think will have the better cardio? Both of these guys are very strong and they will probably both be defending the takedown quite a bit, so I am curious who will look fresher in rounds 4 & 5.

Both of these have great cardio and in the end, I don't think cardio will be a factor. Both will look fresh in rounds 4 and 5 and will still be ready to bring it. Both are smart fighters who have some of the best cardio in mma. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Both have great cardio but I do see Fitch getting worn down in the later rounds due to GSP's pace. I do see GSP finishing Fitch in the late rounds as well probably by a TKO from GnP. GSP is absolutely focused and dialed in to defend his title. Fitch will be tough but I really think GSP wants to make a statement to everyone that he can defend his title.

As the others said, cardio probably wont be an issue, both of these guys are in great shape.

I think that the fight will take a turn if there is a cut..
