UFC announces all future main events will be 5 rounds



UFC president Dana White said that the promotion has decided that all main-event non-title bouts – whether on pay-per-view, Spike TV or Versus – will now be scheduled as five-rounders.

However, the adjustment will not apply to any currently scheduled bouts, such as UFC 133's Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis tilt, or UFC on Versus 5's Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle contest.

"From this day forward, as we speak right here, right now today, every fight that is a main event that is not a title fight will be a five-round fight," White said. "So all the fights that will be made from this day forward will be five rounds."

Pretty big news, considering most people were frustrated when a good main event was limited to 3 rounds, I'm glad they stepped it up, and I hope the UFC fighters will all train for 5 round fights.
