So, Alex, you're revolutionary point is that if you put someone who works on their fitness against someone who doesn't work on their fitness, the one who does the work will be better off?
Are you taking idiot lessons from Hannibal, by any chance?

There is nothing wrong with some running.
But by now I think we all agree for martial arts/boxing/fighting purposes, long distance running is not the best way to go. Just so there is no confusion by long distance running I mean running for 45 mins and more. Not needed.
What I do: I go for a 3 km run at a decent pace. Faster than a jog. After than I run a few sets of hill sprints. Or else I go inside and do the following.
Burpees: As many as I can for 30 seconds
Pushups: As many as I can for 30 deconds
V - Ups: As many as I can for 30 seconds
I do one circut of that then rest for 30 seconds then repeat. It's a good little conditioining drill.

I love you too, Alex.
As I said, I usually do exercises that more accurately reflect the sort of cardio I would need for sparring. That said, I do run, if only to make sure that I can if I ever need to.

I chuck flaming hippopotomi into dumpsters.
I usually run a quarter a ways around the track, punch my punching bag for a minute(beating the **** out of it to bands like Apocolyptica), lift it up, run up a hill, roll down my hill like a ninja, go behind the bleachers and climb up the back, leap off into a breakfall, do as many pullups as I can followed by as many pushups as I can, take the punching bag and do a bunch of jump squats, then snatches, then I push press it into oblivion, and take a 3 minute active break by jump roping, or sometimes I bring my 12 pound medicine ball and shotput it repeatedly, running and getting it each time.

I used to cycle but thanks to some knee problems I mostly concentrate on bagwork now: 5 minute rounds with 1 minute breaks for as long as I can handle it (which ain't long -- I hit an hour tonight and that's about twice as long as usual). I find that my technique actually improves as I get tired, since I start relaxing a bit more and carrying more of the shot with my feet.
BTW -- my cardio sucks.

Ill take skipping over running any day of the week, im also thinking of buying a weighted skipping rope, they work the shoulders like crazy.

weighted ropes aren't good for you. Anything over 2 pounds will destroy your shoulders in the long run, and kill your wrists.
Just jump with a beaded rope, and jump higher/faster.
