YES! i love the ring, i think its a lot more entertaining, sure sometimes you have to restart but i still enjoy it more, guys cant "wall walk" in a ring, you either sweep or get up with skill, also guys cant just be crammed next to a cage so they cant work their sub game off their back, i think its a more fair fight in a ring IMO

also its just easier to work angles and stuff, corner opponents forcing guys to have better footwork...i love rings

but i dont hate the cage...i just wish that sometimes they would switch it up, sometimes use a cage, sometimes use a ring...that would be pretty cool^^

oh and usually its harder to get a TD in a ring...since its harder to just put some1 against the ropes and take them down like many wrestlers do in the cage.

I found it a lot easier to defend takedowns in a cage than in a ring since you can pretty against it and they can't body-lock you as easily. It also sucks getting caught up in the ropes for both guys. The only competitive experience I have in a ring is kickboxing though, for MMA I only trained in one.

Fights would be more official and have more meaning then the CAGE, prize fighters instead of cage fighters like back in pride
Official in what context? As they relate to boxing? Sorry, but this makes no sense.

Not really an argument but this speaks in favor of a cage.

Never saw a live fight in a ring but I would assume you can see a lot more in a ring than in a cage. I've been to two live events and both times I couldn't see anything I was looking up at the screen more than the cage.

I went to a Pride in Tokyo. I had pretty good seats (20 rows from the ring, on an incline), but I still found myself looking at the big screens to get the details of the fight (especially when it went to the ground). The best part of the ring that night was seeing Ken Shamrock get knocked through the ropes by Sakuraba. Otherwise, I'd rather have the cage.

It was amazing, Henderson deserves huge respect for surviving that.

What we need is a ring with a force field instead of ropes.

Now if the cage were invisible we wouldn't even have to talk about this.
