Cagefighting will arrive on the main stage in Japan at DREAM.12 on Oct. 25 at the Osaka-jo Hall.

FEG first hinted mid-August at a change in fighting surface, hyping a surprise for DREAM. 12 as "The Great Experiment," and judging from the new promo video (see above) released Wednesday, the promotion is moving forward in replacing the ring with a cage. It is uncertain if the cage is a one-time special attraction or if it will replace the ring completely.

I like it. More visibility with two more posts missing. A little more springboard action off the cage too, should be interesting to see how they worked it out.

I hope Japan eventually uses the cage over the ring. It would make the sport seems more legit if everyone used the same thing. That why I hater baseball. Everyones stadium is different so a home run is easier/harder in one than another.
