It's only going to be a 3 round fight because Ronda is fighting in the main event now? I was pretty excited to see this be a 5 round fight.

Anybody else consider this after the UFC 157 main event was announced? Phone Post

Especially stupid and upsetting if it's not 5 rounds because Rousey's likely will last about 45 seconds Phone Post

Couldn't both fighters go to DFW and ask him to make it a 5 rounder?  Or would the AC need to clear that?

one of the first things i thought of. this has been brought up in 1000s of threads and hopefully more to come so dana and co. will realize what a fucked up move it is. hope to god this isn't another rampage vs. machida but that is a risk you get with machida in a 3 rd fight. a whole rd is spent measuring the opponent, especially when they are as dangerous as dan

Well the least Hendo deserves is a 3 rounder with all the screwage his getting! Machida got title shot (LOL Dana version) with a 3 rounder VS Darth.

Billytk - At this point I'm hoping Hendo pulls out so the ufc has to try and have ronda carry a card on her own instead of getting to headline the Machida v Hendo card which will inflate her UFC ppv buy rate
I bet you're a blast at parties. Phone Post

It is kinda shitty the five round fight is used on one that will end first round via armbar Phone Post

I hope Hendo pulls out, Gustaffson fights Machida, Sonnen pulls out of Jones fight, in goes Hendo, and then the winner of Gus-Machida fights winner of Hendo-Jones.

Ya dig? Phone Post

Despite that being a ridiculous hope, machida vs henderson could not carry a card either. Phone Post

Machida/Hendo is a huge fight, but get ready for all the 'told you the women could pull in ppv numbers' bullshit. Phone Post

It will still flop though. Just be inflated by that fight, if they had to carry the card I think the numbers would be a record low. Bad move this one.. Phone Post

I agree with this guy. This is an awesome fight. Who honestly would buy the card if this wasn't on it? Be honest. It's supporting the entire card. Phone Post
