    as Pashak said this is ridiculous and isn't addressing the problem of INJURIES IN TRAINING CAMPS. Who the *#%@ got injured in the UFC while riding a horse, or a skateboard? GTFO

    If the UFC really wants to make a difference for injuries, here's what you do:
    Tell the fighters you have 5-6 WEEKS to train for your fight. That's it!!!
    These 8-12 week training camps are fucking ridiculous. NO ONE needs that long to train for a fight. It's too much and most of the injuries that occur usually happen after they've already trained for about 8 weeks.
    TRAINING CAMPS ARE TOO LONG!
    And another plus to shorter training camps means that we can see those same fighters fight a few more times before the years end.
    THAT'S What Needs to be the New Clause.

    They do as well as MLB it's written directly into players contracts at least the really valuable ones who they are paying millions a year to.

    I doubt a lot that this will have any effect.

    Yes... the bigger sports seem to have this down better...

    putting those types of activities within the contract... Although clearly it wont stop it completely... people have free will...

    Look at Rothlesburger

    You would think that Jose would have learned from the Mir case as well as what happened to his teammate.... Dont get on the damn bikes!

    It could be a lot worse, he should feel very lucky... but a major fight did get canceled as a result...

    I actually like this idea and since it is only for fighters who are scheduled to fight, i dont see a problem with it. If guys like Cerrone want to go bull riding, sky diving, etc, they can still do it. They just cant jeopardize a card by doing these things when they are scheduled to fight.

    I think this is pretty standard and I, for one, am surprised it wasn't included before.

    Yeah, that's all fine and good but that still isn't going to prevent people from training too hard and getting injured.

    At least we won't be hearing things like "Aldo involved in motorcycle accident" and crap like that.

    I think that this should help the matter but not completly solve the issue. People will still get injured and fights will still be cancelled. I have a hard time thinking that Hendo was injured bungee jumping...
