    Was one of the best things in Pride, I think the rankings would've been a lot different if UFC had them

    I've got mixed feelings about the 10 minute first round. We all like to remember the fights that had memorable killer first rounds, but there were plenty of times guys gassed the fuck out and looked like shit. Seriously, almost every HW fight these days would be garbage with 10 minute first rounds.

    It was stupid. Rounds need to be uniform for scoring to make any sort of sense.

    The fights were scored as a whole, not by round. If you had started watching MMA before McGruber you'd know that.

    Get rid of rounds, just fight 15 minutes and when it ends it ends. Rounds are just a old boxing model and they were invented for cuts to be treated. but UFC fights never end with cuts these days so just fight, no need for rounds. more blood flowing the better. UFC never ever had rounds for a long time, some of the old 75 year old boxing guys introduced in when they started tagging onto UFC back in the day.

    Ironically you could look at guys who suffered from gassing during longer rounds and it was the likes of Coleman and Kerr.

    The big difference though is that MMA as a whole was a young mans sport in the early/mid 00's, very few top fighters over 35 and most of them under 30.

    10 first round was dope, as was the overall emphasis on finishing the fight.

    You proved your lack of knowledge with your statement and AV.
