Please read carefully as I may have already addressed possible objections: One thing that never made sense to me was 5 round non title fights. We've just gotten so used to them that we don't think about it. 25 minutes is a LONG time to fight. At least in a title fight, there's an extra incentive to battle longer. (That being the title.) But what's the incentive when a title isn't on the line? It's called the Championship Rounds and yet we have them in non title fights? Think about the damage a fighter sustains in 5 round wars. You've essentially almost fought 2 fights back to back. You could also have been winning the entire fight and get caught in the 5th round. Some will say, well you could get caught in the 3rd round in a 3 round fight. That's ok because everyone has to at least fight up to a possible 3 rounds (consistent rules for everyone in non title fights). Rounds 4 and 5 (in non title fights) however, are inconsistent factors. Any 5 round non title main event on a fight night card could have been scheduled during a PPV and it would have just been 3 rounds. This is just not consistent. Controversial opinion, but I say get rid of 5 round non title fights unless they guarantee the winner a title shot. That way they can help prolong a fighter's career rather than prolonging the fight.
