I can understand why people like the ring, after watching the UFC for so long I just adapted to the cage but after I bought an Sportsfight and KOTC (Sportfights uses a ring all the time and KOTC uses both) and when I started watching it I was amazed at how much easier it is to see the fight through the ring. I think Sportfight uses a good ring with the 5 ropes instead of the traditional 3, so out of the DVD only about 3 to 5 fights out of 15 to 20 had to be stood up and moved. I still prefer the cage, but I can certainly understand those who like the ring and if you don't mind the standing up of moving of the fighters (it really, really irritates me) then the ring is nice.

Its a no brainer the cage actually allows the fighters to just go at it and not worry about falling out of the ring, or getting moved to the center of the ring. On top of that the cage looks cooler and is definately more hardcore which makes sense being that mma is a pretty hardcore sport. I'd take being up against the ropes over up against a cage anyday. Cage all the way it makes more sense for the sport, rings are for standup fighting not mma.

Maybe they should have a giant plexiglass Octagon. There would be no hanging onto the chainlink fence/ropes, no stopping the fight to get the fighters back in the ring, and great visiblity.

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

I like this idea for all the reasons you've given, repped.

But then there's friction burns, a lack of give with the material(If a fighters head bounced off it, it'd mean serious injury) and for the material to be strong enough not to riask breaking, it'd have to be dead thick - Leading to light refraction and poor visibility. I don't think the cameras would fare well looking through it either.

Not necessarily. The pelxiglass used in hockey is relatively thin and wouldn't make as many injury. The problem is that it moves when hit, so it would be horrible when hit against it.
