With the high rate of injury for our sport, and the subsequent backing out of fights, wouldn't it be a good idea if for every fight, especially main events, that in addition to the two scheduled fighters, there was a designated alternate to replace either of the scheduled two in event of injury.
This could be set up in advance, and agreed on by all parties involved. This would avoid the last minute haggling between the remaining fighter, Zuffa, and the proposed alternate.
Just cheap insurance. Pay your alternate $2-3k just to be in shape and "on call" come fight time. The price of the alternate, should he actually have to fight would then have been negotiated and settled long in advance.
Dana would not have so many ulcers and stress. He could then use his time making sure the UFC ran perfectly rather than making sure it runs at all.
