It’s a fine idea….I’m just not grasping the point of it. When a main event fight isn’t for a title…why make it 5 rounds? I always thought that the 5 round fight was part of the unified rules. I didn’t know it was just the UFC’s choice.
Man I wish guida vs pettis was 2 more rounds. At least having 5 rounds decreases the chance of the top fighters of the cards suffering iffy decisions (machida vs rampage for example). It will make things a bit clearer and give fighters a chance to finish, but it kinda cheapens title fights because the title eliminators leading up to them will be 5 rounds anyway. when you think about it objectively its also taking the advantage away from the champs of being conditioned to go for 5 rounds, because everyone will be used to it at the top of the food chain
