It'd only increased the number of draws in MMA (UFC) and I dont think it'd be good for the fans and the fighters.
I'm not one of the folk that believes there should be 4 rounds, i only created the poll. You'll have to ask someone else for the answer there.

I dont believe any of the fighters are versed in magic. But since you ask, i believe Silva had the momentum, and Rashad would have tried to take him down and squeeze out a decision. Having said that, i think each fighters gameplan would have been different had it been a scheduled 5 rounder, as would their cardio. And i dont think i ever said that 5 round fights wouldnt go to a judges decision. What i did say is 5 round fights give the fighters more opportunity to finish the fight decisively.

Doh!
