For big guys, no. For smaller guys, it seems like WEC cage was a better fit Phone Post 3.0

Not a fan of clinch work against the cage, so no, the cage is not too big.

CRMartin11 - The size of the ocatgon doesn't bother me at all. What I want changed is the fact that it's an octagon. It's much harder to cut a guy off in a octagon as opposed to a ring. There are a lot more angles and corners. The octagon makes it easy to stall. I also despise the cage. The Cage heavily favours stand up fighting. It makes it much easier to stay on your feet, get back up from the ground etc. Ropes are the way to go.

The only reason to support a cage and octagon is because you are some "Just Bleed" type faggot.

Or if you hate all the constant resets that come with ropes.

Square cage, no resets necessary and you eliminate guys running in circles.

Too big. Make it WEC size with YAMMA pit incline around the edges!

The stats are a little skewed because there haven't been an equal amount of fights in each cage, but interesting none the less.
