I actually don't have the game, but that sounds awful.

I just find myself power leveling each attribute until I get it to either 30, 50 or 70 as it wont drop below those numbers once you get there. Can be very annoying early on though.  Try to use Game Plan as well as it can give +10 to some stats, depending on how you set it, which is a huge boost when your starting out.

Ahh, well that's a good thing to know.

Yep, I just lost to Machida because he subbed me ludicrously easily because my stats had degraded to 0, in order for them not to degrade i'd have to constantly pump stats into it.......meaning that the stats i need would go down, yeah awesome

The whole stat system is crap this year. Why the hell would anyone want to spend most of their game time staring at a spreadsheet trying to keep numbers from dropping all the damn time. PLEASE DANA KILL THE THQ CONTRACT AND GIVE THE LICENSE TO REAL DEVELOPERS. I so badly don't want UFC to end up like the rest of the Yukes games. But alas it seems the bad choices and minimal upgrades to the game are starting on only the 2nd iteration of the game.

I get that it's supposed to make things more realistic, since if you don't train those abilities you won't know how to use them in a fight.
 
That being said, in real life fighters don't do a single 2 minute sparring session in one week.
