"superfight "is pretty relative, i would like to see the definition. If you are fighting on a main card in the ufc should it be considered a superfight? would you rather see five fights with three rounds or three fights with five rounds?

i'd interpret superfights as, anderson v. forrest...chuck v wandy...wandy v. rampage.....big time fights, i think it might be at the ufc's discretion

5 fights at 3 each..
If you have a catch weight fight.. and they are both title holders... then sure.. but Anderson vs Forrest type fight... nah.. keep it short.. and furious..

This is a good rule. Like Rampage and Rashad should most likely be 5 rounds in my opinion. And Couture and Nog should be five rounds also.

Just because it's scheduled for 5 rounds doesn't mean it will last that long. I like the rule. If a good fight goes the full 3 rounds, I'd much rather see two more with a chance for someone to finish it. Puts fewer of the BIG fights into the judges hands and makes stamina more important.
