I'm talking about fight quotas. We know that fighters generally make jack shit compared to the athletes in the other more mainstream sports, but the one luxury they have compared to their higher-earning brethren is flexibility. When NFL offseason training camps begin, the players need to be there through the end of the season. On the contrary, if a UFC fighter wants to fuck off to the beach for nine months, they generally can. Given the fact that fiscal motivation is going to vary from fighter to fighter, the question needs to be asked as to whether or not giving Ortega or Ponzi a quarter million to show and telling them to call when they're ready to fight again is a good idea. Neither have been useful to the company for 18 months, and they'll be knocking on the 2 year door before they'll supposedly will fight again. Conor jerks everyone's chain, and Khabib's now forced interim belts two years in a row. Both they and their defenders will come up with every excuse in the book, and it'll all be a bunch of bullshit. Both of them would fight more if they wanted, or with what I'm proposing, they were required to. Fighters get paid more, on the stipulation that they fight 2-3x per year. They cease to be "independent contractors", and become employees required to contribute. They're satisfied by more money, and Dana doesn't have to deal with Jon/Mas situations. Better fighters fighting more often allows the UFC to have better cards and get rid of cans. Better cards=more money for the company. Everyone's happy.
