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

    Less chances of bad scores...nevermind, but 5 rounds doesnt suck, there are more fights i wished they were for 5 than the opposite.

    7/13 wouldn't have been impacted if it were 3 rounds.

    3 of the remaining 6, imo were not "Good", of which 1 was actually "Bad".

    I have nothing against 5 round fights. But I think because most play out like 3 rounders anyways and that may be a factor.

    I dunno man. One of my favorite fan experiences is when 2 guys have been beating the shit out of each other for 4 rounds and touch gloves in respect before going to war for 1 last round.

    On the other hand, sometimes you get a snoozefest like Wonderboy/Woodley 2...

    Ehh.. Not the best fight but not the worst either. I think it was better than Machida-Anders.

    I get what you’re saying. You rarely see something in rounds 4 and 5 that you didn’t see in the first 3 rounds. It’s usually just a repeat of the same dynamic. I remember when the UFC was first considering making all main events 5 round fights even if they weren’t for the title, and most sherdoggers were like “yeah!!” And I was like “No!!”

    There are exceptions though, like Rose vs JJ 2. Those last two rounds were very important. Even in Khabib vs AI the last two round were very different from the first 2 rounds.

    I'm glad that you actually blessed us by admitting this. The entire site was highly anticipating your opinion on 5 round fights.

    Who are you again?

    I think some people are gonna have the need to protest 5 rounders because if all fights were 3 rounders the course of MMA would be so drastically different. meaning vastly different outcomes for certain fighters on their shit list or their preferred list.

    Most of the greatest fights of all time went to decision.

    I disagree. Because there’s nothing worse than a three round fight that should have gone past three rounds.

    Nunes vs Shevchenko was a perfect example of that. There’s no way Nunes would have won that fight if it had even a couple minutes longer.

    If the fight lasts longer than a minute then put Stipe in there with them.

    Uh... dunno if I'd say Stipe/Fran or Nurm/Al were "really good" or even "good" fights... they were pretty forgettable imo.

    But still, quality post.
