    Do you guys think it is better if Rizin host a mma fight in a mma cage instead of boxing ring?

    Just imagine, Pride Rules + Cage = Pure Brutality of Awesomeness

    I prefer the MMA cage, but I get it. They are tapping into Pride nostalgia.

    Pride Rules + Cage (+Elbows) = OneFC. Minus the scoring and the first round being 10 minutes long.



    Although I think a cage is better for MMA, they should keep the ring because it's something different and a unique selling point regarding higher level MMA orgs.

    the point of the ring is that you fall through it. Hence stopping wallnstall and grappling wedges against the cage.

    All MMA should be in a cage.

    It's flat out dangerous to have MMA in a ring.
     
  9. I'm surprised no one has used a pit yet.

    I like the ring over the cage. Cage is one of those things that holds MMA back imo. A lot of casuals are turned off by it. Also fights are just more dramatic when they are in a ring.

    except that it didn't. M-1 has em, the rizin event had one clinch heavy stall fight. They can still get pressed against the ropes, or pushed into the corner for the same thing

    No. I hate to say it but I don't like the cage anymore. It is more like real fighting but too much inactivity, stuffing guying into corners or leaning on them against the cage.

    Ring is less realistic, you don't have much elastic ropes to buounce off of in real life but way more dynamic and exciting.​

    The constant stop and resetting is annoying ,watching other refs have to hold the fighters from falling out from the outside is equally annoying....yes but they lost that chance to do the cage from its debut.

    No. Ring forces the guys to fight more, fights are more exciting.

    Fighters can use the cage as a weapon which I don't really like, stacking guys against the cage etc. it should just be 1 man vs 1 man
    Safety concerns are just in your imagination. As long as there is a good ref and sufficiently large apron, it's fine to fight in a ring.

    Cage is just a gimmick made by people who couldn't afford a moat with alligators.

    Rizin already put an extra rope in place so overall I think they're fine.

    I personally would like to see Rizin use a cage. The cage is pretty much a standard for modern mma, especially with the bigger promotions. Although not all orgs use a cage, it continues to become more prominent in mma.

    I also find the cage is more practical for mma. Fighters don't get tangled up along the fence like they do along the ropes. Having refs push and pull the fighters when they're along the ropes messes with the pace and can distract the fighters. Sure wall n stall is boring, but it too can happen in a ring.

    At this point, I doubt rizin will adapt a cage. The ring is helping Rizin remain unique and I'll admit that it's more visually appealing than a cage.

    which is harder to doo, showing a better grappling ability. If you can lnp someone in a ring it is much more difficult than doing it in a cage. Ropes wont help you like a fence will
