Dana White: UFC will probably start doing 5 round main event non-title fights



Interesting!

I think it would be a great thing, in a No. 1 Contender's fight! because winner of that would eventually have to be ready for a five rounder!

But, i son't know about the other fights! Even if their on the main card!

You can judge it either way:

Imagine 2 more rounds of in the Torres - Banuelos fight! That fight wasn't entertaining at all. At least for me!

On the other hand - Franklin vs Wanderlei, 2 more rounds!!! Heavenly!

I think if the UFC were to make that happen, they would have to be more careful on who they choose to fight on their main cards!

In the end - i like the idea!

.



BELIEVE!

I don't think they turned SF down. SF said it would have been too complicated to attempt getting it approved through so many different commissions and abandoned the idea.

I think UFC's influence is much stronger though...and they could pull it off!

Would be good if they could get it done then, I guess the UFC has more resources to attempt passing this rule.

They did, actually they did it some time ago.

AND ITS ABOUT TIME DANA!

I remember there was a ton of debate and talk all around MMA so they passed this but Dana came out and said they wouldn't use it, Im so glad they are going to do so now.

This changes the game for fighters like Nate Diaz who are much more difficult to beat in a five round fight vs a three round fight.

main event fights not the whole main card so the torres fight would still be 3.

awesome! i remember this discussion on inside MMA and bas said he wanted to see this, i think it would be great, imagine machida vs rampage if it had 2 more rounds

so many fights...i think the number 1 contender should fight five rounds, its a lot harder to win a 5 round war than a 3 round war so this would make the number 1 contender more definitive than a close 3 round fight IMO
