That is kinda what the UFC cut system has done to fighters. Exciting fighters stick around, but its hard to do that fight in and fight out, so they just go for the W.
I agree but you have to cut guys, its part of the process. I guess the key is to not have so many low-level guys that are basically fodder waiting to be cut.
The other thing IMO is the bonus structure in the UFC. I've said before they need to scrap the win bonuses and scrap the 'of the night' bonuses and just award large finishing bonuses. Right now a guy doubles his paycheque if he wins, but if they made it so he tripled his paycheque if he finished you would probably see guys going for it more often.
