Machida v Munoz is a 3 round fight.

Machida took it on short notice. Please correct!

This is the one time I hope the main event is only 3 rounds. I just dont want to watch Munoz chase Machida for 25 minutes.

They say on the Weigh-In's it's 5x5. Don't know if I am happy or sad about that lol.


All kidding aside, this will be an interesting Main Event, and should be a good card overall.

He isnt going to have a choice Machida isnt going to go after Munoz. Machida back pedals constantly so if Munoz dont chase him we arent even going to have a fight

Machida only backpedals when you come forward, if you stop, he starts attacking

What your describing sounds more like Liddell to me.

I know I'm a Machida hater but he back pedals more than anything in my opinion. I'm just not a big fan of his style.

Pretty much everywhere it says its a 5 round fight



It's 3 on the UFC fantasy website and it was my understanding that short notice fights are 3 rounds but if it said 5 in the weigh ins I guess it's 5

Let's just compromise at 4 rounds?

Yeah that's weird that the UFC fantasy site has it as a 3 rounder. I would imagine they would be on the ball... makes me wonder who is wrong, Karyn Bryant or the UFC Fantasy site. Ah well, seriously doubt this one takes more than three rounds.

I asked 6 mma journalists covering the event, all 6 said its 5 rounds.

Normally a short notice fight goes to 3 rounds, unless the new fighter was training already for a 5 round fight, which Machida was against Kennedy. So that's what I have been told is the reason its staying as a 5 round fight.
