I've never really understood the PR%DE Rounds. are their 2? or 3? or 5? idk it seems like some are just 1st rd 10 min and second is 5 mins. but then you have CroCop and wand 1 which was (i think) 5 rds.. and then you have Mirko's fight with Fedor which was 3 rounds. and what are DREAMS rounds? can someone help me
DREAM fights are 1 10 minute round then 1 5 minute round.
PRIDE fights went like this:
Normal fights: 1 10 minute round, 2 5 minute rounds
GPs with 2 rounds on one night: 1 10 munte round, 1 5 minute round
US events (under unified MMA rules): 3 5 minute rounds for normal fights, 5 5 minute rounds for title fights
The first Cro Cop Wandy fight had 5 rounds cos it was being fought under special rules because cro cop was a k-1 fighter at the time (i think)... they had different rounds in the earlier events too... it varied 2, 10mins... 3, 10mins... 2,10mins with 5mins overtime... unlimited 10mins... they never did a great job of explaining it either... Even Bas and Quadros got confused...
It seems like they were up for debate...
When Saku and Royce fought in the 2000 GP, there was a special rule of unlimited 15 minute rounds (the fight went on for 90min)
Like explained before... Normal Pride fights had two 10 minute rounds then a 5 minute 3rd round...
Bushido events had only one 10 minute round then a 5 minute second...
So far it seems like dream is using the Bushido round system
