Other than the 2 guys who came up with this idea, and the 2 belts idea, are we all in agreeance that both ideas are totally rediculous?

I'm not even gonna lock this thread

Lets make a rule that stating any fighter that a lot of people disdain for, must take a fight no matter what, even if it's fighting two people at once, because that insures the highest possibility of him getting his ass kicked.

...that's what this idea sounds like.

Even if Dana can legally force them in the cage he can't make them fight so the bottom line is that as a business model it sucks.

OK seriously. Even if it wasn't a terrible idea, something like that could never be implemented.

I think the new UFC contracts should be strongly tied to the date instead of a particular opponent. If a fighter is healthy but unwilling to fight on the agreed date (regardless of opponent), he will be fined or suspended.

This will make fighters not only prepare for a particular opponent as usual but also prepare to fight any opponent on the agreed date.

But he can forfeit the title, can't he?.
If the champ refuses a fight, he loses the title. It's that simple.
If he can't defend his title after a full camp, he doesn't deserve to be the champion.
