I don't agree with extending the rounds, 15 minutes is plenty of time and I don't think I could have put up with ten more minutes of Leben/Brunson.

We saw 5 rounds of intense HW action last night that along with the Lauzon/Miller fight, saved the PPV. And you want 2 rounds LESS action out of a HW title fight?

I'm with ya, JDS did not look good at all. But I highly doubt it had anything to do with lack of preparation. JDS trains with the elite, including Cormier who is an absolute monster in the grappling dept. I honestly think Cain was just too much for JDS with his wrestling and constant pressure. At first Junior was stopping all those shots, but then Cain just kept coming and coming and coming. I think Cain might be one of those guys that you just can't completely prepare for no matter how hard you train and who you train with. He is just that good.

I doubt he does since Cormier is a member of Cain's camp, AKA.

I agree, man boxing used to have 15 round title fights as well and it was spectacular but now they cut it down to 12

If you go back far enough, boxing used to just keep going until one guy couldn't go on any more.

Great way for no decisions heh, but 15 rounds was terrific i remember fights like ali/frazier and some sugar ray robinson fights going 14 rounds until stoppages.

sugar ray robinson, GOAT

anyway....this is silly, just because they couldnt keep a good pace for 25 mins they should lower the number of rounds for HWs? i actually like the idea of having 7 rounds for title fights...

i think it would actually help get rid of point fighters, with 10-8 rounds becoming more normal and fights being longer it gets riskier to try and win the fights by points, especially when it comes to title fights, this would help us see more finishes IMO

I'm satisfied the way it is currently. It makes being a main event fighter special, whether it's a championship fight or not. Plus, non-championship main events are usually no 1 contender fights anyways, which allows the challenger to get prepped for a 5 round fight.
