No. Keep them the same
I had a friend (who isn't an avid MMA/UFc
C) watcher advocate for two 10 minute rounds with the potential for a 5 minute "overtime" round. I'm not sayin I'm for or Against (to be honest would rather see fights stay the same length regardless) but would be interested in maybe hearing pros and cons for this?
The ring worked for boxing and kickboxing but was useless for anything with grappling. I was a big fan of Pride but couldn't stand the fight always being stopped to move to the middle of the ring.
As for the gloves, they couldn't prevent eye pokes without taking away from the grappling.
As for lay n pray, there are already rules in place. The judges are supposed to stand people up if they aren't advancing position. Unfortunately there are people like Sonnen who work around this rule by peppering their grounded opponents with a barrage of punches that wouldn't really hurt a little girl, but that's another story.
And on topic. I would like to see five three minute rounds for regular fights. I thought I had an awesome idea, but someone already posted it and it looks like most people agree with it.
