Okay I'll admit it...5-round fights kinda suck.

    5 round fights suck no more or less than 3 round fights. It happens. Some fights are going to suck. Because 5 round fights are typically title fights or number 1 contender fights I am more likely to sit through it given the importance of the fight and what could possibly happen in a 4th or 5th round.

    You can't do that because they're not paid enough. Instead whoever gets a finish gets %15 more per round that was left. No one should get pay deducted.

    True so don' have 7 rounds which I think some wanted. 5 is fine. We need less rules that would help

    5 is more exciting I think
    you can really get into it and relax in a 5 rounder, and yeah that might mean a slow round 2 or 4
    for a huge main event when it can end any second anyway, I like the possibility of 5

    I'm a boxing fan, a sport where fight can go on for 12 rounds, so 5 rounds don't really bother me. Every fighter is different; for some fights, 5 rounds is a snooze-fest and it prolongs a boring decision. For other fights, 5 rounds is just enough time for a fighter to find his/her groove (if they are pacing properly) and deliver a KO/submission.

    The key is which fights had finishes in round 4 or 5. Of course there were a few of them, but those are the fights where you got a finish that you wouldn't have gotten with a 3-round fight. Otherwise you would've had the same result or more action if it was only 3 rounds.

    That's why Charlie Z doesn't have CTE. He only agrees to 30 seconds to 2 minute fights. When you're 160-0 (159 ko's) you can't be getting brain damage like these scrubs.

    Don't bring facts into this. It's not fair to TS because he doesn't have any and you have all of them

    sometimes that happens yes.

    But usually in a 5 round fight you got top level athletes who have good cardio. And if theyre fighting someone with bad cardio, theyre going to push the pace to get em tired.

    RDA vs Lawler.
    Tony vs anyone
    Max vs Anyone.
    Cain vs JDS.
