    I’m not up to date on this 5 round non title fight. Why is this happening is it for a number one contender spot or sumthin?

    All UFC main events starting with UFC 138, non-title or not will now be five rounds… It was announced about a month ago!

    A little reasoning would be nice. Can be good can be boring.

    I’m not a fan of the five round non title fight, would have rather just seen Sudden Victory implemented for draws!

    Not a good fight for Leben. Too bad. He’s exciting.

    5 rounds is more definitive. Its a great thing.

    Robin how do you see this as a bad fight for Leben? He has the advantage standing and a huge advantage on the ground. Mark’s only significant advantage is in wrestling (but don’t forget Chris began his career on the mat with Hendo, Randy and Woggie). Mark is a bit more ‘mobile’ than Chris and tends not to get caught flat footed but I think the last few fights for Chris have shown he’s closing a lot of gaps in his game. He may never were the belt but he’s going to derail alot of title runs before he’s done.
