I see 5 * 3 minute rounds plus a tweaking of the judging to disregard "take downs" as a sensible response to the sports evolution.
These changes would promote exciting striking battles, eliminate fights being "stood up", ensure fights are fast paced, decrease scope for questionable decisions and allow Ariani to strut more often.

Yikes, then what will 70% of MMA fighters do once the fight hits the 4th and 5th round? By the 3rd round, most of them are sucking for air and dead gassed.

Only championship calibure fighters can go the distance, hence why they're champs/contenders.

I like it how it is. Five rounds is to long for alot of fighters. It might sound like a good idea but i bet it would eventually piss alot of people off if they made all the fights 5 rounds. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...... to damn boring.

I don't think every fight should be a five rounder, but I do think that the option should be on the table for non-title fights, which it doesn't seem to be (or at least is never exercised).

Obviously most fights should be three-rounders, but headliner fights should, in many cases, be scheduled for five rounds. Most fights won't get there, true, but if a fight is a headline fight and not a title fight, shouldn't it be, at least on paper, exciting enough that we want to see it go five rounds if it needs to?
