Imagine the non-stop action and with the longer periods of rest the fighters would be fresher and be able to get out the best of their abilities all the while the crowd/viewers are still entertained and entering their wagers.
What brought this idea up was being in the casino in the sports book during a NFL football game and when the game was well under way lots of people would go bet on the game being viewed during commercial breaks , and especially during halftime people would flood to the counter to place wagers for the 2nd half.
If a big fight had more time between the next round it could make betting on a already in progress match possible as well as give a exposed hurt fighter time to recoup his energy or injury and have a better chance at turning the tide of the fight.
I dont know really would be great to see one of the MMA fight associations try out some new fight formats , what do you guys think ?
This is quite possibly the dumbest idea in the history of dumb ideas. The worst part is you put so much effort into it.
