waht about a shrinking cage

a system of pullies could achieve that easily i'll defer specifics to shane carwin as the resident engineer

you start a fight in the regular ufc cage, as the fight progresses the cage gets smaller and smaller, until tis the size of a phonebooth

somebody is getting finished for sure

I love this idea. Phone Post

Square cage imo, give strikers the chance to back people into a corner. Phone Post

How about taking it step further and make it a triangle cage? It would really be hell to be stuck in one of the corners of triangle cage. Imagine being in one of the corner with Lavars Johnson pounding away at you.

Ref dangles from a cord in the middle, Bruce announces from the top, Joe and Goldie rotate around the sphere in a rollercoaster like announce booth....

Good ideas .
Litmus think the square circle shape would allow strikers to circle corner their opponents even more! Phone Post

bigironmike79 -  Don't they use smaller cages on fx and fuel fights? I think a smaller cage is cool. Less running. No matter what weight class. Phone Post

I believe when the UFC goes to smaller venues (like the Red Rock, and other similar venues) they will use a slightly smaller octagon to accommodate for the smaller venue. I'm not sure if they use a smaller octagon for FX and Fuel fights though.

When the technology is there, the cage walls will expand or retract depending on the fight weight.

 

Heavyweight - 30' per side

205 - 29'

185 - 28'

170 - 27'

155 - 26'

Anything below 155 - 25 feet per side.

 

It will be glorious!

Great idea, a fighter could get head kicked off the edge and fall onto a pit of spikes

Stigga -  That would be really funny is they had 2 cages next to each other. One like it is now and one half the size with 4 feet fences and a midget ref and midget ring girls for the flyweights. Phone Post

It would be like the kids table at Thanksgiving.


haha

I'm pretty indifferent when it comes to cage size, but the larger cage is there to promote stand up fighting.

A smaller cage would lead to much more grappling, and especially clinching.

No, its perfect just the way it is, you need room to defend a take down and go for a take down, any smaller and you would be pinned up against the cage the entire time. It simulates a real fight because in real life you have lots of room, like a baseball diamond, thats ware the fights took place that I remember

You guys are all amateurs. Think outside the box man!! Making the cage smaller? How about making it BIGGER? How about making a football stadium sized cage? Imagine how Dodson/DJ fight would have been like? I’m salivating just thinking about it.

Did you guys like the retarded “stop don’t move/move the fight to the center’ of Pride? Don’t get me wrong, I use to love Pride but that was one part of Pride that I did not like. Imagine this-you lock up a submission and your opponent rolls out towards the rope. Do you restart the fight in the center with sub locked in? That’s just dumb.

it was absolutely the worst part of pride, and for that matter WFA and affliction and many other orgs

Another thing about ring vs. cage that isn’t mentioned much- I think it prevents fighters from going 100% on take downs near the rope for a fear of falling out. You don’t see a full potential brought out from fighters who is going for take downs as well as for fighters who are defending it.
 
If there is cage, you have a peace of mind of knowing that something will stop you from falling over the rope and you can go full force in charging for the take downs.
 
If they do a ring on UFC they should allow fighters to throw their opponent over the rope though.

I like cages because they are closer to the reality of a "real" NHB (unsanctioned) street or bar fight. Most scraps happen around buildings, in buildings, around cars, bars, support posts, doors and obstacles of all sorts. In its infancy, the UFC was a slightly tamed version of a one-on-one bar-fight. Whether by design or dumb luck, the cage made perfect sense to me.

I do not like rings, they do not remotely simulate "real life."

And I like the cage just the way it is.
