If you were left begging for two more rounds after Jake Ellenberger’s thrilling three-round victory over Diego Sanchez, you weren’t alone.

Following Wednesday’s UFC on FUEL TV 1 event in Omaha, Neb., UFC president Dana White admitted he “blew it,” and all future main events will feature five rounds.

“Already thought and done,” White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). “I’m actually pissed at myself about it, so yeah.”

The UFC first implemented five-round non-title fights this past June.

“From this day forward, as we speak right here, right now today, every fight that is a main event that is not a title fight will be a five-round fight,” White said following a UFC 131 pre-fight press conference.
