Strikeforce Grand Prix draws to go into Sudden Death 4th Round

Don't know if this has been posted.

I actually got this from Ariel Helwani tweet but can't get that from work so I posted another link for it.

This is actually coming from Zuffa.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

The Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix will resume Saturday night in Dallas with a new rule in place: a sudden death round to settle a draw.

When the GP was first announced in January, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said that a draw would be settled by an independent fourth judge who would "determine who advances or who wins based on the fighter's overall performance in the fight."

However, Marc Ratner, Zuffa's vice president of regulatory affairs, informed MMA Fighting on Sunday that Zuffa, the new parent company of the Strikeforce, has decided that all tournament fights ending in a draw will now be settled by a fourth sudden death round. There will not be a fourth judge assigned to the tournament fights anymore.

Other than the finals of the tournament, all fights are scheduled for three five-minute rounds. The finals will be a five five-minute round fight.

Antonio Silva and Sergei Kharitonov advanced to the semifinals of the tournament in February. Saturday's night card, which will air on Showtime, will feature Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers.

The semifinals of the GP are slated for the fall.

How can this be legal? doesnt the commision have anything say about this? not that am not happy about it, but it seems like a drastic rule change that has never been done before. I mean the commision has a set scoring procedure and everything, wait a minute ive never been trained to a 4 round fight lol.

This will never make it to title fights or any other fight (except TUF). The whole sudden death is becauwse no one wants there to be a bye in a tournament. Imagine if the fight to fight in the final round ended in a draw...then someone wins by default. We wouls scream bloddy murder.
