There's not where in the contract, I'm sure, where they have the legal right to fine you for not accepting certain fights. But you better believe the stigma is going to be promoted. Character assassination, if you will.

Dana won't fine fighters for that but he can keep them from ever fighting for a title and also keep them less active .

Did I miss something? are they refusing to fight each other (Woodley/Lombard)??

That fight would be sick.

because they are neither employees or slaves. they are independent contractors who have the legal right to turn down a fight

they can have an exclusivity clause, meaning that the fighters cant go anywhere else so the ufc can starve them of fights but i am relatively sure they have a clause for that too (if you dont give me x fights in y time, the contact is void)
