According to BJPenn.com, a couple of cool little tidbits of info have appeared out of the UFC 131 Presser.
It's been announced that the UFC will be moving to 5 round main event fights, regardless of wether they are for a title or not.Nate Diaz will be vacating his Strikeforce belt in order to challenge GSP for the UFC Welterweight title.Rampage Jackson will most likely be fighting Jonny Bones Jones for the Light Heavyweight strap at UFC 135.
I quite like the idea of 5 round main events. Hopefully main eventers will get paid a bit more for their extra effort as well (and we won't have as many BJ vs Fitch matches).
I can't wait to see Diaz and GSP. I think it will be Pierre's most challenging fight yet, and I'm happy that Diaz has decided to stick with MMA instead of jumping to boxing.
I'm not sure if I agree about having Rampage take on Jones - but nontheless, I reckon Jones will just out-range Jackson and take him apart.
