    Would he have problems implementing his movement in a square ring ?

    Yes he would. He would have to switch to line dancing footwork.

    No, he's quick enough to cut off even elite guys and not get trapped in a corner. No ordinary fighter could just pull it off, I find Dom a master of his stance

    He might do better in a ring. Contrary to what they guy above said, cutting off the ring isn't all about speed, IMO.

    EDIT: Oops, @RiseAboveHat either edited or i mis-read the first time. I agree

    Just watch Lomachenko. Similar lateral footwork.

    Without the Video, People will think your trolling probably... Video was great made me respect Dom on a different level. He really watched old tape and incorporated some famous boxing techniques into MMA unlike few others have.

    No worries. I was also gonna say I think he would do better in a ring. Imagine The Dominator in the prime of PRIDE. If only

    It would be easier for him due to more limited angles, plus the ropes is more favorable than the cage for speed-guys.

    The elite guys with power would be a much bigger problem for him.

    His movement may be confusing to his opponents but it has enough random elements to it that he gets tagged a bit, because of random movements meeting each other.

    He'd be better. It's much easier to cut off a ring, since it has nice tight 90-degree corners, than the Octagon, which has angles of 135.
