I like the cage and the ring.... for watching on tv, one is no better then the other. live at the fights rings do make the better viewing.
I don't like the restarts, getting caught in a corner, falling out of the ring. i cage seems to help the fights action better with fewer restarts.
I would like to see a yellow card of some sort-no money needs to be taken-but at least a point deduction is in order.
i would also love for people of influence to get state athletic commisions to reconsider knees and kicks to an oppenent who is down -no soccer kicks- but a guy who shoots should run the risk of getting kneed or kicked.
ultimatly though i wish we could see a promoter come out and not use a ring or a cage.. just an open mat with a warning track out of bounds, thats the way wrestlers and martial artists came up competing. it helps prevent most of the issues people have with a ring and a cage. look at the WCL.. it works very well for them. and it gives you a "quest" "bloodsport" feel that is visually different and impresive
