I think brock proved alot during his fight against herring. Lesnar is a serious threat to any fighter at heavy wieght who doesnt have his size. His cardio hasnt been tested to full extent. If tim silvia can go 5 rounds with randy then think lesnar can too.

I assume his cardio isn't anything out of the norm for anyone of his size, although Randy has a significant advantage in that department. Even though he employed great control without exerting himself substantially for 15 minutes against Herring, that really isn't a great indication of how well his conditioning is, but in the same regard there's nothing to offset that.

If one thing is for certain he'll need to solidify the early rounds in his favor because the longer the fight goes, the more it favors Randy dramatically.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'

I wouldn't go that far. Randy hasn't fought in over a year.

a year does a lot to a ancient body like his

Randy has defied the age variable throughout his entire career, and in the midst of over a decade of competition in MMA, his game has only improved over the years. Although I can level with his cardio, among other things, to be questionable solely attributed to his inactivity. His conditioning could very well be a detriment to his game at this point, although I wouldn't bank on it.

Age is progressively going against him, that much is evident, but there's still nothing to incite that his cardio has drifted towards mediocrity. It's very possible, but this is the same Randy Couture that has had great cardio throughout his entire career (in his late 30's/early 40's), and only seems to be sharper with age. I could be very wrong here, there are many intangibles that come with a year of inactivity, especially for anyone at his age, but it's doubtful.

Not even close.

People clinging to this hope are dellusional, and probably have something against Brock for personal reasons.

Gassed is when you can no longer mount a meaningful offence or deffense. That won't be happening to Lesnar at any time within the next 10 years of his MMA career. Don't wait for it.

He has some of the better cardio I've seen at heavyweight recently.

I know it was a couple of years ago, but the coach for the Minesota Vikings said Brock had unreal cardio. And everyone that has worked with or been around Brock says he has a great work ethic.

So I don't see cardio as being an issue. In fact assuming Randy isn't landing a a lot more strikes than Brock, I wouldn't be surprised if Randy gets tired before Brock.
