    Or something similar to hockey walls. Probably been asked, but I couldn't find it.

    Blood smeared all over glass would not be a good look

    Plus there would be FAR more concussions and possibly even death.

    When are we expecting scientists to invent forcefields? Forcefields would be perfect for Octagon barriers.

    The price of plexiglass is prohibitive.

    I've wondered this too. There's also another promotion(I forget their name) where it's cage/ringless. It's just mats that go 6 feet up at 45 degrees on 4 sides. Thought that was kind of interesting.

    I reject your reality and substitute my own
    It’s one of those things that sounds like a good ideas but isn’t practical, plus a blood smeared window would be a bit grim for everyone watching, also you gotta think about people accidentally head butting it

    That actually sounds like a good idea. If it's good enough for Bloodsport it's good enough for mma.
