i really like TS's idea of putting all eliminators at five rounds and having more eliminator fights. it's a win win for everyone.

I agree 100%, with more five round fights it will better prepare fighters for the later rounds.

It's so funny that people are now so accepting of non-title main event fights now that they are even ok with the idea of other non-main event 5 rounders.

Does anyone remember what shitstorm was being raised by many (most) Sherdoggers when the UFC decided to make all main events 5 rounders?

There are so many people who think that what is, should always be. Zero vision on anything.

I don't think every match should be 5. For PPV, I think prelims should be 3 rounds and main cards should be 5 rounds. Idk about FNs, maybe main/co-main should be 5 with the rest being 3.

Id say top 5-6. But top 10 is a good idea anyways.

The fighters are free to make it a 10 second fight if they want. I don't think dragging out fights in the lowest drawing division or boring fights is going to help the number of viewers. For every Hendo/Shogun style decision there are 5 that are guys point fighting and riding out the clock in top position.
