    in the squared circle at least, outstanding conditioning has defeated outstanding technique many a time.

      because in a LOT of situations , Technique is not what balances Conditioning .

      POWER is .

          Umm , no .

          "Conditioning" can = Cardiac Endurance .

          And it usually does in these convos .

          But if it can ALSO = POWER , then there needs to be a distinction made ...

          BIG Power + NO "Gas" + Flawless Technique = KTFO

          Flawless Technique + MAD Gas + NO Power = NOko

          See the Variant ?

            a good recent case would be the corrie sanders vitali klitschko fight. corrie sanders had big power and ok technique, but gassed out early and vitali gave him the beatdown. i am not certain of the applicability of this logic to submission fighting.

              This question is like asking "Food or water: which would you prefer for the rest of your life?"

              You need both, although I would agree that if you have mediocre technique, a skilled opponent will put you away regardless of how conditioned you are.

              Djimbe has a point: a 250lb relatively unfit muscleman will put away a 150lb marathon runner easily.

                  Technique. For no particular reason, other than what everyone else here who said the same thing said.

                    Technique, once you have technique down you can always get fit. Infact I know people who have they're technique down so well that they almost never train only workout and stretch. Not me though, I got to do both.

                      Superior technique allows you to call the shots. Your opponent's superior conditioning won't get him very far if you make him do all the work. It also allows you to take a breather when you need one when you have the skills to ride and defend in a way that your opponent can't get through.

                        I guess it depends on what kind of fighting, you're talking about, I was thinking more along the lines of kickboxing/boxing where conditioning plays a big role. It's hard to take a break when the other guy is wailing away on you. Also if you're fighting to win by points, conditioning will help you pick apart your opponent because they'll be dropping their guard by being tired. And I don't care who you are, you have to expel some energy to kick or punch no matter how technically good it is.
