That's why Conor cycles, and why we see him doing that aqua running. The problem is, it's non-impact, so it doesn't translate when you're on your feet for long periods.

This is why we saw him gas against Diaz twice, [A primarily stand-up fight], and why he gassed against Floyd. There's a reason running has been a staple of boxing forever. Back when I boxed there was always a saying: "You don't run, you don't fight". Running's non-negotiable. Doesn't have to be daily 5miles, but you need those 5km runner VO2 Max workouts.

Rumour is Conor will be fighting Nate in December and he'll gas again. He needs to figure out a way to run with his knee if he wants to solve that cardio problem [It wouldn't be such a big issue against a grappling based fighter because it's a different kind of cardio, but against Nate it will be].

Keep an eye out for articles/footage regarding his training because Nate's cardio will be better at 155, and if Conor hasn't worked out a way to run, there's a good chance he gets overwhelmed in the 4th this time round.

Is this true TK? I don't do running for cardio but maybe I should put it back in. I gas out really quick and I'd do anything to up my stamina. Is running really the key?
