Has this ever worked for someone. I've only ever seen a guy be cut win some fights and really feel the hunger again out of the ufc then come back stronger. No one I can remember has voluntarily taken a year off and come back better.

This was my first thought but maybe some fighters are starting to think differently. Alves should have beat Kampmann and though he lost fair and square, the frustration may have been what tipped him over the egde.
I've got nagging injuries, I should have won that fight, I'm still under 30... screw it I'll take a year out see how I feel. Don't forget, these guys earn more than we're led to believe.
