He said except fights that have had contracts signed at 3 rounds already.

Got it, thanks for the info. Damn this fight must've been signed a long time ago considering Dana made the announcement about 5 rounders prior to 131, which was in June.

Actually, it was only about a month ago that Dana made the announcement. The announcement that you are thinking of referred to all PPV main events, not including Fight Nights, UFC of FX, UFC on FUEL, etc.

Ok, I'm officially confused. I just googled this article that was written on June 9th where Dana says:

Quote:
From this day forward, any fight that is signed after right now today will be a five-round fight," White said.

Even main events on Spike TV or Versus cards? You bet. Even late replacements that get shuffled into the main event? Absolutely, said White.

I think Alves is a much better striker (more powerful especially) and his TDD, if it's anything like it has been in the last few years, is going to be way too much for Kampmann to take it to the ground.

Alves stands about zero chance. He put on 27 pounds of water, he'll be slow and sluggish and get tko'ed in the second after an abysmal first.

I think he would be fine at WW if he didn't have so much muscle mass. He should be dieting down to 185 during camp and then have an easy cut.

This completely contradicts my beliefs of fighter's fighting at their natural weight, but from a standpoint with the current system in place, this is what I think he should do.

Dolce diet is good and all, but 27 lbs? lol he shouldn't be cutting that much weight.
