Here's a business plan option for you.
option A: Become the champ who takes all comers,who carries the company, the sport, the fans and the other fighters on your shoulders.
option B: Become the champ who is afraid to fight anyone including an out of shape, smaller challenger who is much less prepared to fight,without at least 10 weeks of specialized preparation, all while cultivating the open animosity of your employer.
