    They should have stuck with the idea of alligators and plexiglass, that would have been fun

    I prefer the circular cage.
    I prefer the white colored cage but the black might be less distracting. I've never been to a live event so I don't know how they compare.

    Octagon.

    Its harder to win by Lay n' pray, hugging, cornering and walking down your opponent.

    The dream cage is the best MMA environment ever IMO - and was coupled with almost the perfect rules at Dream 12 (only supassed by One Championship currently and Pride)

    -easy to see through
    -"netting" with a bit of give, rather than harder fence so it was more difficult to get a takedown against it (you could move your hips more against it) or get up using it
    -6 sided so strikers could still work angles and corner a bit more
    -smaller so the action was more freqent, less running
    -looked beautiful

    I cant remember exactly, but the fighters said it was the best surface they'd ever fought on

    And there was no LnP because it was a decent scoring system with a good criteria and it didn't reward the bullshit (position+run the clock) we see in Unified MMA - judges actually JUDGED, not added up scorecards with no real analysis or consideration/context of the entire fight.

    If every MMA bout was in the dream cage/with OneFC or Pride rules/judging it would be glorious

    Honestly, I don't like the octagon because of its large obtuse angles. It allows fighters to disengage/circle away with substantial less risk of getting trapped, and as somebody else stated is more suited to lay'n'pray IMO.

    If anything I would prefer a square cage as it would put more emphasis on proper footwork and allow fighters to cut off their opponents easier/engage in more action. The UFC did do a little good though by making the cage smaller in some recent fights.

    So that said, I like the Dream cage better than the octagon. Ideally though a Pride ring with a cage fence would be best. Too bad it will never happen cause of how iconic "the octagon" has become with the UFC.
