I think the important element of this is
But is there any way this actually has a chance at being implemented? Would commissions honestly allow a five-round war to go to a sixth sudden death style round, just for the sake of clarity?
Currently, it is completely disallowed for a fighter to fight more than 25 minutes in a fight. They would have to amend the Unified Rules and get all the major commissions (at least NJ and NV) behind it for it to work.
I am for this idea (at least, I like to see fight finished in a definite manner) but it's not as simple as just getting Dana to agree. It took Zuffa a lot of work and a lot of money to get even the current rules implemented among the many commissions.
