P.S. I know the actual announcement was posted here someplace as well.
I don't really understand the reasoning here. It seems like limiting the length of fights is a safety issue, and what's the difference between a title fight and a non-title fight in terms of safety? If it's too risky to let non-title fights go to 25 minutes, why let title fights go 25 minutes? It's a strange thing.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
