Sign the contract, fight injured or whatever ailment you have and get an automatic bonus OR cancel and the UFC deducts their fight purse. Simple. With nothing at stake fighters will continue to pull out. Again it doesn't have to be too drastic. Just enough to get the point across. The UFC is still in a learning curve.

I just hope Dana has a heart monitor cuz he must deal with some serious stress on a daily basis.
Exactly. The best approach would be to possibly change the package up a bit.

The fighters are obviously taking more risks during training and in doing so costing the UFC alot more money then just the money they spend covering their medical costs. Something should be done about it.

Not to mention that its screwing us fans over.

Just a second ago i read that Vlad Matyushenko got injured during training and needs to pull out.

This is getting ridiculous.
