Should heavyweight fight be 3 rounds.

After watching Cain vs Jds last night, do you think heavyweight fights should be just 3 rounds championship or main event?.

Heavyweight fights don't tend to last it into the later rounds but when they do, they are F*****. These guys are 250 pounds, that's a lot of weight to carry around for 5 rounds and what we end up with is 2 zombies. Last night I knew Cain would beat Jds but what shocked me the most was his Cardio. Please don't start with the.... It's because he gained muscle comments. Bottom line Cain smothered and set the pace very fast and would not let go, I really felt for Jds after round 2.

Point is do you think heavyweight fights should be just 3 rounds? Do you think we would see better performances with 3 rounds?,

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

No effin' way.

These guys are PROFESSIONAL athletes. They need to fix their stupid cardio problems or else they risk losing in embarrassing fashion. Disappointed with JDS. He should have been more prepared for the high paced high pressure style Cain was going to bring. Poor showing from him.

All championship fights should be 25 minutes.

I wouldn't be upset if it went back to the old rules though, where non-championship main events are still only 3 rounds.

Having non-championship fights go 5 rounds doesn't feel right to me. It made those championship fights just a little more special, before every main event went 5 rounds.

All fights should be 5 rounds. Title fights should be 7.

TBH the pace they were fighting at early was insane and being rocked took a lot out of JDS.

what i was gonna write!
3 round fights often leave things unsettled and may result in a "fake" result.
Imagine if shogun vs Dan was a 3 rounder.
What if Lauzon versus Miller was a 5 rounder? I see Lauzon catching Miller in some kind of sub.

Agreed with your first sentence but 7 rounds is too much in my opinion. I could get on board for maybe one extra death round in the case of championship fights however.
