    Long training camps are unnecessary

    Nate Diaz - beat the best fighter on earth on 11 days notice
    Michael Bisping - won the MW championship on 2 weeks notice

    IIRC Houston Alexander took a fight on short notice to get into the UFC and KO'd Jardine.

    If he was beaten and finished by a short notice drug addict maybe he is not the best fighter on earth.

    I remember Leben fought Akiyama 2 weeks after beating Aaron Simpson and won. Not sure how much notice he even had for it.

    If I recall correctly Anderson vs Bonnar was short notice, pretty decent beating... I can't remember the circumstances around Anderson vs Griffin if that was short notice.

    First one that came to mind.

    Story was on a nice streak and just beat Alves. Then the hype train just kinda died.

    These threads show the stupidity of taking such a fight. No one really remembers or appreciates it. But if you lose, then you lost and are in the back of the line. If you need the money (or if its a big opportunity like a title shot), then so be it. Otherwise, probably best to wait for the next one.
