I think the fence/cage is about the only thing that is left for the UFC to recreate an environment of "real fighting." Unless you're fighting in an open field without any physical obstacles, getting crowded into/crowding your opponent into something is a viable tactic in fighting. In a real fight, if you have your back against a wall, table, desk, car (etc), you're at a distinct disadvantage. Everyone who ends up in the UFC knows that it's there, so why not train for it?

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

A headbutt would be cool to be in the UFC, it would make it a bloody and deadly sport and make a lot of fighters improve their ground game if they suck at punching on the ground.

But also, this would make politicians want to ban UFC because it would become more deadly and gory, and no other sport like PRIDE and King of the Cage headbutt others.

But I think it would be cool and make fights end a lot shorter. I also think they should let fighters in the UFC knee people in the head like PRIDE allows.

ok the fence is not bad. keeps a fighter from falling out.. maybe make it padded some how so it don't cut the fighter and create a stoppage for that. but the head but is a cheap move that requiers almost no skill. heck my 3 month old can bruise you with his head butts.. It is simply not needed. all it would do is shorten fighters carears give the sport a bad name an you'll end up with a bunch of half brain dead retired fighters. You think guys like ALi improove the image of boxing when you see them now? Nope why do you think they almost never go to a man like that besides being half brain dead . oh wait thats why... And no I am not insulting his carear as a boxer he was truly one of the best.. we need MMA fighters with his style that will bring in better ratings
