Well, nothing they can do to stop injuries but there is things they can do to keep it from messing up cards. I just started a thread about this very thing. In brief, if champs are injured, move on quicker and have contenders ready to go to crown a new champ. The old champ gets an immediate title fight when he's able.
By far the biggest contingency they need to start using is giving fighters a heads up that they might be called upon to fill in if someone gets hurt. Either have them already fighting lower on the card or pay them to stay ready just in case.
The UFC has way too many guys under contract not to be ready to plug someone else in. Instead they'd rather blame the fighters, get someone who is out of shape and needs to cut 30lbs in a week or go out and find some guy working in a coffee shop.
