    i think KOTC is 6 sided. wec is 5 and wfa is round.

    What does King of the Cage use? I've never even noticed companies like WEC or the original WFA using 5 or 6 sided cages.

    ya, i wasnt sure because i noticed a lot of promotions werent using the 8 sided cage. it really is the best for camera angles and such. a think the wec cage just looks stupid. five sided.

    I think the trademark is promoting your events as being held in an octagon, or referring to your cage as an octagon. Obviously they don't have a full trademark on MMA events using octagons, as many other sanctioned events have had them. Rumble on the Rock jumps out at me right off the bat. I believe Strikeforce was in an eight-sided cage as well.

    from what ive heard the UFC already has a trademark on the octagon as its property. i dont know if only they can use it now but it wouldnt be up to the nsac or csac to decide it would be up to the courts and the trademarks. thats why the wec and wfa use a pentagon and round cage respectivly and i think someone else uses a six sided cage. im pretty sure the ufc already has the trademark on that.

    "if the fighter wants to keep fighting let him fight.he's not going to get hurt that bad-nothing a few stitches can't fix."

    I was talking about that quote. Obviously you already knew why they stop fights on cuts, but yeah it shouldn't be in every case if the fighter wants to keep fighting let him go no matter what in terms of cut stoppages. Sometimes you simply have to stop the fight because of a cut. I don't recall the Neer-Guillard fight, so that's what I was saying about not knowing if that fight was one where it should've been stopped. It sounds like he went back in and won quickly, so that the cut wasn't really a factor in terms of risking serious injury on himself. But you can't assume a fighter is going to go in and win without taking more punishment to the already cut eye and if it's bad enough you can't take that risk you have to stop the fight. So in all cases, no. In that particular case? I can't say I don't remember it or the cut much at all.

    the blood was getting in his eyes and around his eyes he was bleeding pretty bad.

    Granted, nothing but respect for Neer to continue on. Guillard smelled blood and went for the kill and made a mistake. Neer toughed it out and choked him out something fierce.

    99% of the time though, I think that fight gets stopped. Considering the location and severity of the cut, I am still suprised. They have stopped fights for much less.
