How long is needed rest between fights?


Mecca V.I.P.
Dec 17, 2016
In the UFC, there are fighters who take on fights on short notice which is not advisable. And there are fighters who fight after 2 months of their last fight whether they won or lost. Although the physical setup of a fighter is different from normal people like us, the human body is still susceptible to breaking down when subjected to frequent punishment. In boxing, a short gap of 2 months is allowed for a boxer provided he won his last fight with ease. But in mixed martial arts, it seems that they still have to craft a rule on the ideal gap period between fights.
