Well Arlovski will be going nowhere fast if he keeps that crap up.. I don't see Dana wanting fighters just skating by..
Exactly. The concern that draws could encourage passive fights is (probably) unfounded. Dana has already taken away a guy's title shot for "fighting to not lose", and all of the fights that I mentioned in the first post were barn-burners, imo.

i like the idea of an additional round after declaring a draw by the judges[...]

I also wouldn't mnid a sudden victory round like they have on TUF if it's ruled a draw. Would add a new element of tension to fights IMO.
I agree, an "extra time" round would be exciting for many fights, if only because we don't want the action to end. Imagine if Guida and Griffin had been given another round..!

Then it comes to a draw and the fight is pointless and there is no sense of an end to the fight.
And by the way, the NHL did change the rules to eliminate draws and I think it was the best move they've made in years.
Right, this is probably a common objection to draws for a lot of fans (and maybe for some fighters too, I dunno).
