Smaller Octagon?

Is it just me or does the Octagon look smaller tonight? Dana said a while back that he was considering a smaller Octagon to encourage aggression and make it harder to run away, do you think he has secretly implemented this change?

The cage is definitely smaller. Maybe it has sth to do with the venue being smaller as well?

The WEC cage used to be smaller as well so because of the Venue they could just be using an old WEC cage. That said I am not noticing a change.

i remember during the WEC aquisition it was said that for small televised events such as the ultimate fighter finale the WEC sized cage would be used whereas the PPV's still use the larger octagon.

They've always used the smaller cage for the TUF finales, especially in that venue

I even think they used it for the first season, though I'm not sure They had it before the WEC merger

The cage in the Pearl at the Palms has always been a smaller cage. Believe it's 30ft as compared to the normal 35, could be off on that though. I don't mind it with the smaller guys but it seems to push the heavier weights a bit much IMO.

You're right, it was just discussed during the WEC merger due to the fighter moving to the bigger cage.

The TUF and UFN's have always used a 25FT cage and the PPV's use a 30FT.
