Fighters fighting injured isn't good either. So no, the answer is not remove the health insurance.
Taking the insurance away isnt so the fighters will take the fights injured. I dont want that either and it seems everyone completely missed the point.
I believe it would cause the fighters to finally start training smarter in order to avoid the injuries all together. Just like before the healthcare got put out.
(Such a typical forum scenario)
I was thinking this same thing. I hate to see all the changes going on, and the cancellations and such, but I don't expect fighters to fight injured either.
Maybe every event needs to have alternates at all the weight classes for that event on stand-by so if an injury occurs the show can be saved. And if these alternates were identified when the fight was booked, then the opponents would know in advance who they could be fighting in the case of an injury. It would also give the alternates more notice to be ready.
I don't know, I'm just reaching for solutions here. The injuries are getting so frequent, something has to be done.
Again im not trying to make it so fighters have to fight injured. I HOPE EVERYONE READS THIS!!!!!!
See that would work but the "alternates" still wouldnt really have a earlier notice. Since it would be unfair to expect someone to put money into a training camp knowing that he wont fight unless the guy gets injured. So he would probably still wait until the guy gets injured to start training seriously.
And lets be realistic...
The roster is getting spread thin as is. Having alternates for each "Main Event" would spread the Main Event worthy fights pretty thin. Much less if were talking about alternates for each Main card.
The idea could work in theory but it would need some work.
For instance... the alternates could get maybe a 10k paycheck just for getting in a training camp without knowing if they will fight. This is if were talking about only having alternates for the Co Main event and Main event. Since getting alternates for each fight is unrealistic.
