Gassing is a complicated thing. For some it's as simple as training harder. But for a number of others there's a psychological component, including getting too hyped up before the match, and that's a lot trickier to overcome. I think Andrew Alton had a significant psychological component. I'm not sure what is behind Beard's gas tank issues, but I'm pretty sure there's more to it than just needing to train harder. I would be shocked if Beard hasn't be training hard.I think Beard is a better wrestler for the first 4-5 minutes, but unless he gets early termination, the last two minutes are going to be rough. It's like a slow motion car wreck.
For like the tenth time on this forum: I hope Beard is riding a bike, a lot. If he can get his endurance up, he'll beat a LOT of people. The kid was a foot slip away from beating Amine.
WORK ON YOUR ENDURANCE, BEARD!
