I would rather the ring tbh, I wouldn't fall out the ring i'm pretty sure, then again there would be no room for pettis kicks if we got rid of it
Have you watched Pride?? people fell out somewhat often. Also the rules pretty much hurt wrestlers and favored strikers. Not saying that isnt more exciting sometimes BUT it hurts the sport. The Cage was created so no style gets favored over the other just like a sport should be.
To me Pride was more for entertainment, while the UFC is more
of a sport.
