Default Interesting!!!! Five by Five

Five by Five: The UFC is 'probably' going to implement five-round main event non-title fights

According to UFC President Dana White at yesterday's UFC 129 press conference:

"We've talked about it before. There have been fights that we were watching that have been three-round fights like 'Damn, this should have been a five-round fight. It's the main event and it should have been five.' Yes, we can do it. we can make a main event a five-round fight and we're probably going to start doing that."
Five-round main event non-title fights may go a long way in proving who the better fighter is, but does a championship bout then lose some of its luster if there's nothing to distinguish it (besides the title) from a standard main event? Let's hear your opinion on the last three-rounder that should have gone five and then cast your vote in the poll below.
It is because you chose to get on the mat that makes you the winner. Think about how many people are not on that mat right now. - Luis Sucuri Togno
