Here's mine.

 

1. Tito Ortiz

2. Forrest Griffin

3. Diego Sanchez

4. Urijah Faber

5. Clay Guida

6. GSP

7. Nick Diaz

8. Matt Hughes

9. Jon Fitch

10. Frankie Edgar

 

Honorable Mentions: Josh Koscheck, Kenny Florian, Stephan Bonnar.

I'm sick of Dana White gleening over cancelled fights never a peep just like it disappears from the face of the earth. I'm pissed that whoever dropped out tho I saw george at the fight so I'm guessing that Condit once again called in sick. I say there goes his chance at the title he was scared and faked an injury give it to someone who will show up.. get rid of carlos condit fan club....

Cardio is hard to judge because a guy like Royce Gracie could probably fight 20 rounds because he exerts no energy.IMO GSP exerts the most,all you need to do is watch other fighters struggle to get take downs,that is because it takes a ton of energy.

Iknow Diaz appears to have a lot of cardio,but lol he has been fighting a lot of NON cardio guys ,so not like that is a very good test on his cardio.

 

Many of these guys were relying on being much bigger and having an easy time throwing guys around,but trying to throw a bigger stronger guy around takes a ton of energy.

It is VERY simple to look at,look no further than BJ Penn.He is suppose to be a great BJJ practioner but he can' get the fight to where he needs it because if he tries to take a guy down he is gassed completely out.

So looking over guys who actually use a lot of energy GSP is number 1 easily and all his fights are 5 rounds not 3.

If i had to pick a second guy maybe Homminick?I guess many of the smaller guys because they carry little to no body fat.Yes Faber is also good.

I would favor fighters who fight non stop, GSP rests a lot during the rounds, he doesn't go non stop. I would pick Guida, Diaz, and Cain Velasquez. Cain has tremendous cardio when you take his size into account.
