5 Comments to UFC 141 Pre Fight Press Conference Open To The Public In L.A. This Friday

  1. Michael says:

    is anyone else worried that these new 5 round non title fights may produce longer more boring fights? Obviously Leben Munoz was fine, but considering the gas tanks of the heavier fighters I am concerned they will maybe hang back and conserve energy early on.

  2. Digs says:

    It’s worth testing.

    A lot of fights end up w/ razor thin decisions and even worse, Draws.
    5 Round fights will help alleviate that issue. And if it doesn’t, the UFC won’t do it anymore.

  3. Xaninho says:

    I think it’ll prevend alot of crazy judges decisions. Most 5 rounders end before the last bell rings…There were way too many fighters being robbed by the judges lately.

  4. james says:

    i didnt know overeem was 6’5, i thought he was like 6’0. any fight with brock is entertaining so i cant wait for this!
