Fourth Sudden Death Round Added To Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand-Prix

A fourth sudden death round will be introduced for all Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix bouts to help settle any draws that may occur, a smart move as Zuffa attempts to keep the tournaments momentum going and prevent any controversy. It has already been revealed that all quarter and semi-final bouts will be contested over three-five minute rounds with the final taking place over five-five minute rounds. Reports:

“Marc Ratner, Zuffa’s vice president of regulatory affairs, informed MMA Fighting on Sunday that Zuffa, the new parent company of the Strikeforce, has decided that all tournament fights ending in a draw will now be settled by a fourth sudden death round. There will not be a fourth judge assigned to the tournament fights anymore.”
