Why do people question Liddell's cardio/ability to go 5 rounds?
I don't get it, I honestly don't. Everyone thinks Chuck Liddell can't go 5 full rounds with Tito Ortiz. I'm not saying Chuck has better cardio than Tito Ortiz, but Liddell has gone more than 25 minutes in his career. According to Sherdog, in 1998 he went 30 minutes with Jose "Pele" Landi-Jons, a very dangerous fighter who has knocked out Matt Hughes. Liddell defeated Pele by Decision. Chuck Liddell has won 6 out of 6 decisions in his career, and Tito Ortiz has won 5 out of 6 in his. When Liddell went 30 minutes with Pele, this was before Tito was known for his cardio. Tito became known for his cardio after his loss to Frank Shamrock.
So what does everyone think? Sorry if the threa doesn't make sense to some, I'm just trying to say that Liddell can go 5 rounds with Tito.
