Fighting in front of a hometown crowd, Ellenberger dominated Sanchez for two rounds and survived a hairy third when The Dream rebounded to take home a unanimous decision in a competitive and entertaining bout that set a new precedent for UFC events from here on out.

All anyone could say following the bout was that they wished it would have been a five-rounder, and UFC brass agreed. So, from here on out, all main events -- not just those broadcast on Fox and pay-per-view -- will consist of five rounds.
