No point in 5 rounds for non-title. Just add a sudden victory round and be done.

One springs to mind is the Rampage Evens fight. A 5 rounder would have menat a TKO I think. Lets face it that's what we want to see!
Ummmmm flawed a little here.....Did you not watch Fitch Penn? Do you honestly think Jon wouldn't have finished BJ in a fourth round? More likely that then Rashad Rampage.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet
