I don't expect to see Lesnar's cardio taxed in a 3 rounder.
    thing is, look at his gameplan for his two fights so far. it was pretty much "i'm going to try and reenact penn vs uno 1, but at heavyweight." i can think of maybe half a dozen fighters who can keep that pace for three rounds, and none of them outweigh brock's torso.

    i mean, maybe you're right. maybe he's gsp +100lbs. but i'm not sold yet.

    I think your all the joke.

    I think the cardio it takes to look like your fighting, and the cardio it takes to fight, are two different things.

    SIR, YOU KNOW NOTHING OF THE FINE SPORT OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING!

    Seriosly though, fake wrestling still takes incredible cardio because even though the opponent isn't really resisting, they're still really throwing them. Plus, the matchs are very long (I've seen hour long main events) with no breaks and sometimes multiple matches in one night.

    Let's not forget the road travel they have to do which is a lot more stressful for wrestlers of independet wrestling promotions.
