GSP wishes there were no rounds in MMA

 

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre recently appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, and said he wishes there were no rounds in MMA.

Damon Martin ‏@DamonMartin
Georges St-Pierre says he wishes there were no rounds in MMA. That's the true way to determine who is the best fighter. #UFC

The remarks parallel those of UFC co-founder Rorion Gracie, who cited them as a reason for selling the UFC, when a Royce vs. Ken Shamrock superfight made rounds mandatory to adhere to the PPV schedule.

“We had to time the fights now, so a winner could be declared” said Rorion in a 2009 interview. “But how do you determine a jiu-jitsu winner if he’s at the mercy of judges who don’t understand jiu-jitsu? A jiu-jitsu fighter fights on his back, with his opponent on top of him. He needs time to wear out his opponent, to ‘cook’ him like my father did. There were rounds, and I no longer wanted to be involved. I wasn’t happy. It’s like a girlfriend you love until she becomes a bitch.”

So what do you think UG? Would rounds make a difference? And if so, does it matter?

I can't tell if he is saying he wants 25 mins with no rounds or no rounds no time limit period.

Either way IMO he has faded late in many of his last fights.  I think he is a amazing athlete but I don't think a point fighter would do well for 25 non stop mins.

Still wants a time limit, just no rounds. Would actually make the fights 2 minutes shorter because of no breaks.

p.s. the nsac is a joke

I think he means fights should be 15/25 minutes nonstop, I agree. Would make judging alot easier and more finishes would happen. Phone Post 3.0

He's right, and MMA would be 10 times better is there were no rounds. Right now MMA is getting stale. At the top level, guys are good enough to know how to avoid getting finished, unless they stand and "wang" like fools to entertain the retard fans who wear affliction clothing. Also, it would most likely cut down on the decisions and idiots complaining about judges decisions or someone not finishing.

1 round, no time limit. No judges. Tap out. Knock out. Referee stoppage. Corner stoppage. That would be awesome.
To ensure fights don't last for hours, something like this may work:
After 20 minutes of fighting, each fighters purse is deducted 1% every minute there after. Phone Post
