I prefer both guys not knowing if they are up or down so they have to give it their all from both sides.

I think it would encourage fighters to coast through the remaining rounds.

Every fighter is my favorite fighter, I automatically have respect for those who compete to fight because it takes tremendous amount of heart and courage.
