Out of the blue today came news that the NSAC will be meeting on August 19 to vote on a number of proposed rule changes outlined in this document (.pdf). One of the more note worthy proposals in the document is a provision which would allow certain non-title fights to go for five rounds. The changes are italicized.

Sounds like it's a done deal already. I like the idea but only occasionally. I hope it doesn't get carried away and used to much.

This is the only type of fight I think they should be used for!
What is the point of putting 5 round fights in the devisions that are already established unless they are or a title?
The only other time I can see them getting used is maybe if a number 1 contender match is close they could then say fight on for the next two round and see.

That and catch weight fights which tend to be either superfights or just plain awesome!

That's pretty cool, I think they can make it pretty interesting. maybe have #1 contender fights be that long, as a precurser to the title fights.

In theory I like the idea because we tend to focus on the three round fights where it just doesn't seem right to end them in the judges hands. However, in practice I cringe at the the tought of there being a good chance of having fewer fights on a PPV card because of one or two longer fights.

I think this approval causes as many problems as it solves.

Stupid idea, IMO

5 rounds should be for title fights only

Everyone claims they don't want to see non title 5 rounders. Why? Are you going to seriously tell us you don't wanna see Franklin in a 5 rounder as opposed to a 3 rounder vs Hendo/Wanderlei/whoever else they give him?

I know I would rather see Swick vs Kampman as a 5 rounder for sure.

Same with Rampage Rashad, I can only pray that one becomes a 5 rounder.

And for all the bitching about there being fewer fights on the card, let us remember the Nov. card where Griffin got knocked out in the 3ed round and Nogueira got knocked out in the first round.

So the chances of two 5 rounders going all five are slim.

As long as its not abused I like it. Rashad Page or Battle of the coaches of Tuff all the time. Headliner fights like Nog Coture when no title on the card. I know they are not going to change that fight. Catch weight super fights, Headliners on fight nights maybe. There is a time and a place.

your right because it goes both ways it might save you from 2 boring undercard fights with another Coture v Rizzo or you might miss 2 good undercard fights and get a Anderson Letites. I think if used corectly it will be for the most part a good thing.

I think this is great idea. Unlike some I also want to see instant replay get put in place. If it was in place already Lennox vs Villefort would have been ruled a no contest and not a TKO victory for Lennox because of a headbutt.

I like the idea of guys being able to go all out, but this rule creates an asterisk type situation (similar to, but not as drastic as baseball).

From now on, fights will have to be categorized by length, and some fighters may have an advantage/disadvantage depending on their spot on the card.

You cant tell me that the odds on Couture/Big Nog dont heavily swing Randy's way if this thing is changed to a five rounder. In a 3 round fight, its even, 5 rounds, Randy pulls way ahead right now. Just one example I can think of off the top of my head... My opinion, of course.
