    Really? You think a guy that's dead tired and knows they've got the fight in the bag is going to be going for broke?

    It's a good idea in theory but it would lead to guys stalling and fighting safe far too often when they know they have the victory secured.

    Would the guy who is losing let their opponent fight safe?

    Wouldn't be the first (or hundredth) time we saw a person chase the other around the octagon.

    That is unfortunately true. We've also seen guys like John Fitch and Okami get released for being the most boring fighters alive so I don't see that kind of people having a long career in UFC

    As a general rule they only get released on losing streaks.
