UFC Quick Quote: Five round fights are good for the sport

"Five round fights are better for the sport. I might complain about them, but it's good for the fans. The fans don't have to fight them, I do! Everything aside, I think it's good for the sport, I really do."

That's according to middleweight "Crippler," Chris Leben, who will join Mark Munoz in the first five-round non-title fight main event when they go to war at UFC 138 on November 5 from the LG Arena at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England. The original "Ultimate Fighter" also sounds off on the Nate Marquardt scandal on Inside MMA tomorrow night (July 22) on HDNet. Anyone agree with Leben's assessment? Are two extra rounds in the main event good for the sport? Or only if the headliners have the cardio to support them? Thoughts?
