Or maybe it has something to do with time restrictions as all of them are on regular tv.

Still bullcrap.

With those fights are the main event and being 5 rounds, I would be okay with taking a fight off from the main card to see potentiall another two rounds from those main events.

Remember in boxing when they'd announce the scores every 3 rounds so the boxers and cornermen knew where they were at in 10-12 rounders. That'd be badass if they did that after round 3 in 5-rounders. It'd give you an idea how bad the judging is, but at least it'd let the guy know getting shafted what he needs to do.



guys would be getting knocked out while they tried to figure out how the judges could possibly have come up with the scores they did.

LOL EXACTLY GOOD POINT...BUT WOW HOW CAN THEY CHANGE THAT...WHAT IF THE HENDO RUA WAS ONLY 3 ROUNDS...



Caps lock aside, yeah, that would've been an awesome fight, but a 30-27 Hendo UD, not an epic even fight. Shogun really benefited from the extra rounds, which was the opposite of what I expected from the championship rounds.



sry bout caps was rendering a project at work and atoo lazy to hold down shift

No worries, I just always picture someone yelling when I see all caps.

It's always yelling in GSP's voice too for some reason.

As a fight a it would have been more exciting if it had only been 3 rounds. it was cool to see hendo gas worse than shogun already was and Rua make a come back but round 5 was horrible and at no point did i think Hendo was ever in danger of being stopped. if anything that fight makes a case for 3 round main events both those guys were gassed by the end of round 3.

great so we now will have more fights with the potential to end like Machida/Rampage where there is no clear cut winner and everyone is divided on the outcome and is pissed that there arent 2 more rounds to decide a true winner.

this is utter horsecrap
