I hate it when fighters do that. Boxers do it too. For instance, Floyd Mayweathers last fight was against Ricky Hatton in December of 2007 and he does not even have a fight schedualed right now. Boxers don't even get hurt anymore. They could easily fight once or twice a month, and for some reason they dont.

I think that they should have more events. Like, they have the main ones (Numbered) and they have the UFightNights. They should have other smaller events or more FNights so that the fighters can get more fights in.

STill, each event takes time to get together and I'd rather the events remain at the quality they are at. Quality over quantity! Still, I'd like more quantity.

the thing that is supposed to be awesome about fighters is that they are supposed to be able to perform at bad odds. If they can't they aren't much of a fighter to begin with are they?

BIngo! Hendo gets 100K minimum per fight, Chuck is like 250K before bonus'

Fight nights are for the TUF guys to fight
