I think most of your responses are gonna be from UFC nuthuggers who are gonna say the cage rules w/o reasons. I see how you're trying to compromise, I like that.
Other than that, how anyone can argue for the cage is beyond me. The ring is the place to hold combat sports. I will say it in caps for those who dismiss it...
THE CAGE IS A WEAPON TO BE USED IN THE FIGHT!!!!!
Can this not be any clearer? The environment the fight is in should not be a weapong. Restarts are only when either necesssary or when there is no action goin into the entanglement.
No matter how many sides, the ring is the obvious option....
Having said that , I know this always starts it's own thing but....
The open mat is the only real option. No outside advantages. Yes, there are restarts when necessary.
Just an example an oldIgor fight. or these Yves Edwards fights just as a couple examples that it does work
cmon JimiMak. you started off complaning about ufc nuthuggers saying cage rules without reason then proceeded to nuthug the ring. both are good environments. although i do like the visibility of the ring and that was a good igor archive.

Even if there are better alternativers, I dont see the UFC EVER getting rid of the octocage, just my two cents.

I think that an open mat would be difficult in the sense that the fans there live would feel as though they've been taken out of the action.
You guys do realize. That shit breaks. And becomes very sharp, someone could get hurt.
And if they made it like super unbreakable crazy super strenth ultra glass. It would be hard as F*ck. Imaginge someone hitting their head off of that.
The Plexi Glass idea wont work
In Hockey most of the action takes place awawy from the glass. In the UFC Ground fights are almost always pushed up against the walls.
