Dana need to work with his fighting divas.



There must be two to dance tango is a common saying here in Sweden. This is very true in MMA as well. Dana has been facing some serious problems latley tho, by a mob of angry fighters who say they won't fight their friends.

These are divas. But the number of divas has increased even further and today its becoming very common with fighters who is only fighting a few times a year. This makes fans unhappy and I see why.

If you are a freaking fighters, get your ass out there and fight. I can see why a fighter that just got rocked may need some resting and time to train and fix holes found during fight, but these who win in a few secounds.

These should be out there fighting again, again and again. So we viewers don't have to wait forever. Waiting a few months is too long for us mortals to wait in order to see our favourite fighter fight.

But as said earlier: there must be two to tango. And for this to happen Dana need to offer fighters more fights as well. He can probably do this by signing with hughe networks, putting more fighters on each "card" etc.

What do you think do fighters fight to little and act like divas or is it danas fault they so rarley fight? Would you like to see UFC fighters fight 5 times a year instead of 3? Do you prefer many new faces (fighters) or is it better having UFC fighters fighting over and over so you get to know them? What UFC diva(s) would you like to see participate more in the ring?

I would like to see fighters fight 5 times a year, but it really isn't up to anyone but the fighter. I can also see why training partners wouldn't want to fight each other either, again it's really up to the fighter. I don't really think there is a whole lot that Dana could do about any of these things.

Fighters don't want to fight that often at least most of them competing at the highest levels. You are underestimating just how much of a fighter at the elite levels life gets put on hold during his camp preparing for a fight. Many of these guys are married and have families. You need to remember that fighting is there job. I don't know about you but I work to live not live to work.

everyone would be over-trained if they where to fight that many times a year.

In my opinion the champ if healthy should be required to defend his belt 3 times a year.
Once every 4 months is not to much.

Certainly not! It should be written down in the contract

I think we'd see a more eager GSP if he were to suffer a loss.
