I think at a certain point longevity comes into play.
Fighters make a lot of money off things other than fighting, sponsors, gyms, seminars, etc..

The longer you're relevant, the better.
KOS fights often, but has only had a 5 year career,
Fedor is going 9 years and look at his record, I could see Fedor having a 15 year career.

So while I can see the arguement for fighting as often as possible,
I can see why fighting less would have benefits also.
