Georges St-Pierre Wishes the UFC Didn't Have RoundsMark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports

Recently, Georges St-Pierre appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience where GSP pointed out one of the many things he would change about the UFC. Hear him out.   

“There’s a lot of things I would have changed in the sport,” St. Pierre stated. “First of all, the time, there [should be] no time, no round. I think seriously… I believe it is stupid, the round. If you want to see who is the best man, let them fight; fifteen minutes or maybe 25 minutes for the championship. No rounds. Why the round? Why are we trying to be like boxing? We’re not boxers, they did rounds to be like boxing to be accepted as a sport. … No rounds. I think this is ridiculous. … I would rather fight with a rule like this. I think it would be more honest, like, who’s the better man? Let them fight.”

What do you think of 15 to 25 minutes straight of action in the Octagon for the championship? Sounds grueling, but it does seem interesting to us. What do y'all think?
