    Zabit shouldn't get anything but a 5 rounder no matter who he fights.

    Absolutely. I have no issues with Ortega holding out for a 5 rounder. Zabit is truly an idiot if he thinks he can avoid 5 rounders forever.

    Why wouldn't Zabit want a 5 rounder? He has a chance to clear his name and show he is ready for a title fight. (If he doesn't gas again and get finished in the 4th or 5th)

    *Maybe he is holding out for a can to agree to a 5 round fight.

    Have them compromise and make it 4 rounds, whatever just sign the fight.

    I don't see any issue with that. Zabit is clearly trying to hide his cardio issue. But problem is if you think you are a championship caliber fighter you can't always hide behind those 3 round fights.

    Good match up. But the fact that Brian is demanding a 5 rounder tells us that he is not confident in beating Zabit. I personally don’t care if its a 3 or 5 round fight. But if its not a title fight, why ask for a 5 rounder? Why make up new rules that you believe favor you?

    I thought Zabit was going to fight Zombie? I doubt Zabut would want the 5 round smoke

    No problem with me 5 rounds will determine who the better fighter is anyway

    If its a main event, than all the love. I doubt it though. Looks like Ortega would have asked for a 5 rounder even if it wasn’t a main event.

    Zabit is turning into a coward. He wont fight anything but 3 rounders ok. Then be content being a gate keeper. U dont deserve to be near title.

    Diaz should start asking for 10 rounds for non title bouts.

    Absolutely. Ortega should not accept the fight unless it is a 5 round fight.
