Default How about 7 round championship fights?

Thoughts? The Rampage bout would have ended more exciting and some endurance fighters could work on better game plans.



Rampage/Henderson wasn't bad to me, a bit slow, but 2 more rounds would have been interesting and would have maybe exclamated the bout.

Huh? It would have been even slower if it had gone two more rounds. Henderson was just about done but Rampage didn't look like he had enough to finish him. Seven makes for sloppy endings IMO.

Both fighters would have lowered their workrate, so the fight would just look like a slower version of the real one.

He seemed to me like he could have finished him with an extra round.

Doesn't it depend on the bout?

I bet you haven't wrestled a day in your life. 35 minutes if MMA is nuts. You know why in Olympics wrestling matches last 6 minutes? Cause its tiring as ****, there's no rhythm that you can get into.
