A lot of publications are saying its still only 3 rounds. Playground has it listed as 5 rounds.

Wait, this really is only three rounds?

Why is that? The main event was changed quite a long time ago, wasn't it?

That doesn't make much sense, and I don't believe it bodes well for Rashad. In a 5-rounder I'd give Rashad a decent chance against Hendo as long as he's really focused and ready to win (AKA he doesn't look like he did against Lil' Nog).

However, in a 3-rounder, I don't think he has that great of a chance beating Hendo. The fourth and fifth rounds are two rounds Rashad would really need to win against Hendo to beat him IMHO.

It doesn't really matter to me either way since I don't care who wins, I just think it's foolish that it's only a 3-rounder when the other main event was cut from the card a long time ago. I thought all main events were supposed to be 5 rounds.

Edit: Boy, was I wrong about Rashad
