    See the time stamped video:



    The octagon should be inclined like that. That way, when you retreat from action, you're literally moving uphill. And if you jump in to engage, you get a momentum advantage. It would naturally discourage circling away point fighters and bring the real fighters like Wanderlei and Nick Diaz to the pinnacle of the sport.

    no, because higher elevation and punching downward gives more force. if anything it encourages nonsense tactics

    Fighters should be handcuffed to each other with one wrist each. That way you get action.

    This means one fighter will have the high ground and even sith lords can't combat that.

    That says something about "martial arts" as they're trained for the UFC then. If something so simple as a hill completely changes the martial arts, then are they really the best "martial arts"?

    I think the cage should be expanded 20 yards out but with lions chained up put under trap doors and allow Dana to release them when action slows.

    Then we put emperor fedor up high in a booth signaling thumbs up or down

    Octagon should be 50 yards round. No wrestling advantage.
