UFC Fight Round Indicator UI Design

UFC upgraded it’s round Indicator from a simple “round #” to an icon that has 5 gray lines that change color below the time indicator.

I can’t tell for certain if this is round two or three because I don’t know if lines change color before or after the rounds. Worst, if all 5 lines are white and you just started watching you wouldn’t be able to tell if it’s the first or last round. Well, unless you looked at all the blood…

Possible solution would be to partially fill up lines as time expires, or better just go back to numbers.
