Sudden Death 4th round for Draws in all fights?

After watching the Story/Gastelum fight, I began wondering why the UFC doesn't introduce a similar system to the McCall-Johnson I fight with an option for a fourth round if a draw occurs in all fights?

I feel judges would be less afraid to use 10 8 rounds or score for draws if this was the case.

The extra round also would help prevent draws from occuring and help give us a more clear winner.

What are the negatives of a system such as this?
Would you be against such a system?

I agree with you. 10-8 for dominant rounds, extra round if a draw happens.

Commission would never allow killing a professional athlete. Especially killing him suddenly.




















Sorry, had to.

I'm sure people will have issues with it but I am onboard if they can do it right. What happens in a 5 round draw like Hunt/Silva though?

In that specific case they would need to flip a oin, cause neither guy could fight another round.
