If any current champ wanted to take a 6 months vacation what would happen?
Nothing would happen.
In a world were Cain and Pettis are champions I can't see the UFC taking the champs belt away
That the usual for Cain
6 months off is 2 fights a year not counting training camp.
6 mos, nothing. If gets well into a year though it depends on how much money the ufc thinks they are losing.
Nothing would happen since a lot of the time they don't fight more than twice a year anyway.
A couple cocktails and a mugshot might happen
They should be cut, but whatever.
6months really isnt shit since they only fight 1-2 times a year as it is but any champ that wants large amounts of time off needs to be stripped
No. Please see Petis
He should vacate the title, or the ufc should have an interim, maybe the second option is better
Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis hasn't fought in 9 months
Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez hasn't fought in 7 months and isn't fighting until November.... Over a year between fights. And has been +6 months between fights 3 times in his last 5 fights.
Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman will have been 7 months by the time he fights Machida.
Anderson Silva had 6+ months for 4 of his title fights.
Dominick Cruz was out for nearly 15 months before having his title stripped.
Jose Aldo had almost a year between fighting Mendes and Edgar.
Georges St. Pierre had 6+ months for 4 of his title fights on his last run as champ.
Need any more examples....
6 months between fights has pretty much become the norm for champions in the UFC.
