What if in Hockey, the period runs up but someone is on a breakaway? Should the ref ignore the bell and let the man go till he shoots the puck? Hells no.

There's time limits and periods for a reason. You can't get the job done you don't deserve the extra break because you've got a sub sunk in or your on a breakaway.

You're like the the male version of that chic with three boobs from "Total Recall".

They need to just get their work done in the time frame provided, it's more motivating to finish a fight. Besides, things like rear naked defenses can go on forever! I wouldn't necessarily call it "saved by the bell" as much as "tough luck for that dude who couldn't finish". But luck can be countered by skill and if there's an urge to finish fights faster, it's with the 5 min rnds.
