I agree with GSP go back to the old days ... no rounds but with a time limit.

I would retain the 15 minute fight for non titles and 25 minutes for titles.

Back in the day very few fights went past 20 minutes and they were FUN to watch.

EXACTLY!!! The only time there's any excitement in a GSP fight is the start of each round when the other guy gets to throw 2 punches!!

This is something I would also do. I agree 100%. There are no rounds in real fights, it also gives unfair advantages that there is an automatic stand up even when a round ends on the ground, and also because it doesn't give BJJ practitioners enough time necessarily to work a sub.


On the flip side, you can make an argument that each round is like a mini fight, and that the guy who wins the majority of those mini fights wins overall. Then again a TKO/KO/sub ends it entirely and doesn't just grant victory for a specific round.

No ref in real life to stand you up or to end rounds, no cornermen to give you help, just you and an opponent.
