With fights being scheduled so far ahead and even with promises of "if A wins B, he will fight C..." why not have a fighter that is not signed to fight on a publicly noticed standby? There have been times where fighters are complaining about being healthy and not getting any fights, and at the same time there are others that are constantly signed to fight that don't go through. Sarah Kaufman recently said: Why would it hurt to have a fighter like her on standby? She (and every fighter that could jump in to fight) would probably train harder knowing that she might get the call to fight. Is it not a win-win situation? Fighters would not have to step in on a short notice (out of shape/deal with a horrible weight cut) and the fight would not have to be postponed for months. The person that was scheduled to fight did not train hard for nothing. The fans/the org gets a fight.
