Absolutely terrible decision. What determines a "main event" is completely arbitrary. For example, the "Main event" of a UFC Fight Night in most cases is quite a bit less important than the top four or five fights of a PPV card. Would the main event of a Fight night go 5 rounds if this goes through? Credibility of the sport dimishes greatly if this passes.

great news! i definitely think it's a good idea to make the main event 5 rounds. it seems to me that if fighters are good enough to be the main event of the evening then they should be good enough to withstand 5 rounds. especially if winning were to give the fighter a title shot.

I don't see the point. In my opinion, since the UFC has now 7 division, there is not a reason why every event should'nt have a title fight... exept for the fight nights of couurse. And even if there weren't title matches in an event, i dont really think its neccesary a 5 round fight. Some say for #1 contenders fight, but we know that you may win a contenders fight and not be the contender..... Also we would get less prelims showed since the PPV would be longer.
