Or if in a ring, they were in a cage. I always hear things like "yeah but if that fight took place in a ring, the other guy would win". No he wouldn't. The stage of the fight is not so significant that it could change the outcome of a fight. Anderson Silva would beat Forrest Griffin in a cage, or in a ring. Fedor would have lost to Werdum in a cage, or in a ring, or in an aquarium, or in a box.
