We are far removed from the days when John McCain referred to the UFC as human cock fighting, in fact we are much closer to having mma sanctioned in Massachusetts and New York. As far as the cage, a little smaller would be ok however it is working just fine the way it is.

There are so many things that could be changed

Changing the ring seems so minor as to be silly.

It will just make it look more like a dog fight imo, with little actual impact on fights. It won't encourage fighters to stay in the pocket. The only fighters who really use all their space are Anderson and Lyoto, and they are great to watch anyway.

that wouldn't be a bad idea.

someone once asked me when we talk about PrideFC why we never put
"the" in front of it, i asked him, "do you put the word 'the' in front of God?"

I agree that fighters should have more freedom in their choice of clothing. If somebody wants to wear wrestling shoes or a Gi, why shouldn't he be allowed to? It's mixed martial arts and right now everyone has to wear the clothes of a kickboxer.
