1) How many people do you have per weight class?
2) When do you fire someone after 1 or 2 loses? I do 2, just wondering.

I keep around 20 fighters in each weight class.
I dont have any set amount of losses before I cut somebody. When I let somebody go it usually just depends on their popularity and their talent. If I had a guy rated as an international fighter I wouldn't let him go no matter how many fights in a row he lost. I'd rather have a national fighter on a losing streak than a regional fighter on a winning streak.

I push fighters that have black belts in charisma or excitement or any of the fighting stats. I release guys whose reputation hits zero. Cans are very important as momentum is very important. I hire lots of cans except at heavyweight cause their are so many of them.
I release popular fighters sometimes to help the competition so they can hold shows and serve as feeder leagues. Usually I release guys who don't have any black belts.

I've got about 30 per division in GAMMA - approx 10 top level fighters, 5-6 who are a step below (either very young fighters, or old, formerly top level fighters who are slowly jobbing their reputation away) and then about 15 cans.
Re firing - once a fighter's reputation hits single figures, then he starts becoming fairly useless - the regional athletic commissions start stopping him facing most of your top 10, due to being mismatched. So once that happens, he gets 3/4 more prelim fights against other cans (get them some rep / popularity back when they beat him!) and then bye bye!
Totally unrelated - but has anyone else noticed that getting from 90% regional popularity to 10% national is very hard for a fighter to do when he loses all the time? (even to a top fighter) It's almost like there is a bit of an overness cap there! :p

20 people seems about fine. If my organisation only has 2 weight classes - like WEFF at the time - then I'm inclined to keep more then that. But with ALPHA-1, let's say I keep arround 20.
Firing is a bit difficult. If a newbie loses a couple of straight fights I fire him. Simple as that. A veteran with my company can stick around as long as he has the popularity to back it up. Unexciting fighters who lose can be dropped as well. Once a year, i tend to check the pop settings and fire someone who's old and unpopular (which is rare).

1) I usually keep around 20-25 fighters per divsision. If I find myself with much more than 25 I shuffle some folk down to the company I bought out.
2) I very, very rarely fire people. When I sign someone, it's for a reason, and because I think I can use them. WMMA isn't like real life in the way that IN real life, people have to fight for you to see how good they are, but in WMMA, you see how good they are right there on the cout screen, so you know what you're getting.

I think Dana White has an idea how good the fighters he signs are. He'll never sign complete nobodies. He might send 'scouts' to check their training gyms etc.

i usually fire them once they get negative fight records (i started a new game with fighters all set at 0-0 records) i only release them once their contract expires though

Damn I think I went overboard I got 7 weight classes with 40-50 people per weight class. I just recently started cutting people who have 4 straight losses. So I actually had a bit more.
