For instance, last night's Condit/Hendricks fight should have been 5 rounds and billed as a co-main event.

It has benefits in that it prepares the contender for the heavy grind of a 5-rounder and secondly it leaves little doubt as to who truly deserves the title shot.

Agree?

Yes, that was kind of stupid to have it be 5-rounds. Especially since, yeah, if you're calling it a "co-main event", then obviously it should share the 5-round format of all main events.

Why should some random bullshit like Sotiropolous vs Pearson be 5 rounds, or Wand vs Stann, but not #1 vs #2 contender in a division? 

If they're going to limit 5 rounds to title fights and final fights on the card, then stop putting mega/contender matches on cards that already have a headliner. But that would be retarded, so just make them 5 rounds if they warrant it or if you're going to bill it as co-main.

All main events, title fights and no 1 contender fights should be 5 rounds. Too much at stake to stop after 15 minutes. Phone Post

We barely have actual "whoever wins is the top contender" fights any more. Phone Post

Most Main-card fights should be 5 and championship fights should be 7, in my opinion. Phone Post
