Diaz and his trainer want that. BJ said only if they paid him more. They declined.

Thx for thr quick reply, thats a shame. But regardless of what each party prefer, it being a main fight of card its 5 rounds no? Very dissapnted its only 3. Do you have a link to where you read this? Thanks

They signed a contract for 3. They've been training for 3. So, unless both parties agree, it wouldn't really be fair to force 5 rounds on them.

When the two signed on for the fight, it was the co-main event. They probably would have had to resign for 5 rounds.

Plus Dana said after the GSP injury, that it was still going to be 3 rounds.

dana said this trend was starting at 138, so i dont feel that we're necessarily entitled to it.

although fighters should train for 5 rounds anyways, i think the short notice would make it difficult to change....but then again i picked BJ so this is def in my favor

The UFC really should start putting some language in their contracts so they can switch to five rounds. Let's say they are signing the co-main event for a big card. The contracts are for a three round fight. Put in an option, that both fighters can agree to, that states if the main event of the card gets pulled, and the co-main becomes the main event, that it can become a five round fight. The option can come with stipulations. Say fighter X was going to make 20k to show and 20k to win for the co-main. If it becomes a five round main event, fighter X will now make 35k to show and 35k to win. Just an example. It can't be much more difficult than a normal contract.
