I think 3 would be ideal.

It's hard to determine where a fighter's truly at or say he's the "goat" when he's only fighting once every 1 1/2 years.

I like that guys like Rory quickly got fights booked for early next year just after coming off a fight. None of this waiting years to fight nonsense.
 
Three seems ideal. Maybe one on fox per year. Just stop putting them over fighters 10x more talented than them. Co main is fine.

3-4 times . its getting crazy with them never fighting
 
At least 3 if younare one of the best. As much as possible if you are a prospect.
 
I prefer 4 fights a year. 8-12 week training camps are too long & breed too many injuries.
 
3+

4 is over achieving and 5 is crazy, but can still happen.
 
I'd say 3. Four if they aren't big named fighters.
 
The last guy I can think of who had 4 fights in a year is Jones.

He only had about a month to prepare for Rua after defeating Bader. Wow.

His next fight will be at the end of April.

7 damn months after his last fight. Wtf?
 
3-4 for top fighters
4-5 for non ranked
5-7 for prospects

3 a year is ideal. I agree. One per year annoys the hell out of me.
 
Assuming we're injury and movie career free, 3-5 a year. 3 for titleholders (maybe 4), 4 for guys on the cusp of the top 10 or so, and 5 for rising prospects. But even with those numbers (specifically 5), you shouldn't have taken too much damage in those fights. You always got to let your body rest when it needs it from such a grueling sport.
 
Should be 3. That's why I give big props to Melvin Guillard because he's constantly been fighting a lot in one year. He'll be fighting 4 times this year. Michael Johnson will also be fighting 4 times this year I think.
 
^ yup Michael Johnson is going on his 4th fight this year. And he's won all of them so far.
