I like a little bit of theatrics.
I like getting a sense of the fighters personality.
It just can not get to be so showy that it attempts to upstage the fight itself.

Remember the bj penn vs uno fight? LoL that was hawt. Run in as fast as you can, throw some punches in your opponents face in 10 secs, Run back up the ramp as fast as you can. Thats how i remember those stage entrances.

No they shouldn't. The stage costs too much money. Where the stage is they are losing money on seats. That money should also be spent on the fighters.

I think they should, it gives the show a more 'big time' feel. Like when I watch the UFC fighters entrances, it could easily be mistaken for some minor league show. An entrance ramp like from UFC 40 should be used.

Watch WWF if you want to see a stage. If you want to watch real fighting watch UFC or boxing.

I wish for the main fight, and only the main fight, that they did. All they do now is turn out the lights, play a little music, and then turn them back on. I would like a little more build up for the main fight.

I would be all for having a stage. I think that it does bring another level of excitment.

If anyone things that having a stage makes it the WWE, that's just stupid. What happens in the cage is what makes a fight a fight.

They use a stage at some boxing events. I've noticed that all the big boxing bouts in Cardiff use a stage. Prince Nassem always had a huge entrance when he was boxing.

I like the big stage entrances, but it is kinda too similiar to WWE and UFC wants to look as legitimate a sport as it can, so that probably why they make it look more like your standard boxing match with entrances from the arena doors.
