Sudden Death Round
 
In the ultimate fighter when the match becomes too even and they can't determine who won the fight, the sudden death round is granted... Why not do that in UFC fights when the fights become too close?
Instead of having to wait 3-6 months to see the same fight again?

This is an excellent Idea :thumbsup: and it would not take away from the 5 round title fights. This is also used extremely well in the K-1 fights.

But in order to make this happen, judges can not be afraid of giving out 10:10 rounds!


This should really happen! At least for a non title Co and Main Event.

It would also bring so much more excitement to the Sport. Just look how many fights go to the fourth and final round in a K-1 bout. It's just neccessary in such a combat sport!

Plus you said it, the entire immediate rematch thing would be gone.

Thats how it should be..

If there is a draw after three rounds, the judges' scores are thrown out and one or two extra three-minute rounds are contested. The judges' decision will then come from the scoring of each extra round only. If, after the extra round(s), there is still a draw, the judges will decide a winner based on the flow of the entire match, considering even the slightest difference. A fight can only end in a draw if both fighters go down at the same time and cannot get up, or in the case of accidental injury in the late stages of the contest.

Bar including a mandatory 3 round, which wouldn't happen, its the best possible way to settle a fight IMO.

bad idea. people train for 3 rounds. now they would train for 2. so a wrestler finds it twice as easy to lnp a victory.

it works in tuf vecause they are amatuers in that context.

another idea is to have a 4th round. again its a bad idea. people will either hold back for the final round or they will get robbed for maxing out in the first two.

a lnp'er well ahead on points would always be forced to go to another round or the crowd go ape shit because they wanted to see him get knocked out.

the bottom line is this..........judges dont decide fights. they judge them.
this paradoxically moves the game to much into them deciding the fight, by giving them the control of the octagon. this then puts more fan and dana pressure on the judge and creates a ****in mess.

it works in ams but it just aint professional.

the pressure on judges to award a third round would be immense. people would be pissed at not seeing their moneys worth if the fight didnt go 3 rounds, minus a ko/sub.

After watching Falcao last weekend...this is not a bad idea.
