wisdomseeker76 -  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

taking money from fighters is stupid always

There's at least one person in this thread that would disagree. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah after 20 make the cage start to slowly move toward the center until they only have an 7x7 foot cage to bang in Phone Post 3.0

Ever hear of the yellow card?

I simply offered one viable option to prevent a fight from lasting hours.

The taking of ones money tends to motivate. Phone Post

As a GSP lover (yes homo)/NSAC hater, let me say that this is fuckin' hilarious.

Take away rounds and it really favors the wrestlers. Chael beats Anderson easily in their last fights without rounds. Anderson was never going to get up on his own.

But, given enough time, he might have found a submission.

He didn't win on the feet the first time stupid. He won in his guard.

He recovered guard in the first round of the second fight. Who knows what would have happened. Sonnen is not a finisher and wasn't doing any damage in the rematch.

Kazp306 - Thats why GSP is a legend, what a badass thing to say Phone Post 3.0

GSP says a lot of things. (I am going to put a beating on Diaz, time to walk the walk, blah blah blah) 7 decisions in his last 8 fights. Unless he pulls off some amazing finishes from now til he retires, any talk of him being amongst the Greatest of All Time will be laughable.
Mark my words: GSP never takes a fight with Anderson Silva, if he does The Spider makes him look worse than Forrest Griffin.

I'm honestly shocked and disappointed that the UG Blog didn't go with the Alien headline instead.

That would probably be the case if there was still a time limit, but remove the time limit altogether and the opposite becomes true. The wrestlers benefit more from the current rules than anyone else because you just have to hold someone down or against the cage and they assume you win. Just removing rounds wouldn't make much difference. If there were no rounds and no time limit being durable and able to finish would matter more as time went on and control with poor finishing ability would matter less.

But hell, even adding upkicks to opponents with a knee on the ground and heel kicks to the kidney would hamper top control fighters quite a bit.

Yeahhhh man I respect the hell out of you and that was a funny joke definitely made me chuckle. But I have to think if you get on the underground you can no longer be in denial about your terrible fucking judges lol. Seriously you should look into that shit. And knees on the ground would be cool... Phone Post 3.0

No rounds is good.

How about 30 minute time limit for championship and 15 minute for non-title.

All you fucks that are for yellow cards should get money deducted from your paycheck if a project you're working on doesn't meet projections, or more realistically for this group you don't sell enough fries during your shift.

These are people, working jobs to make a living, they aren't slaves. Fighter pay is low enough as it is if you aren't a superstar. Taking money out of the fighters pockets is stupid and unethical, Dana, Joe, and everyone else with a brain agrees 100%.

Big John said if they instituted yellow cards he wouldn't use them, he would never take money from a fighter

Ok, I respect your opinion. I disagree with it, but I do see what you are saying.

Now offer a solution to prevent a fight from lasting hours.

It is very easy to say what is wrong and not offer a solution. Phone Post

How about using some of that to educate some of your judges. How many more fighters do you want to screw over with awful decisions made by your incompetent friends?
