Behold, the hexagonal cage that will make its debut at Dream.12 on October 25. Sure, it seems to have geometrical peculiarities that the Octagon doesn’t have, such as the two sides of the fence that are way longer than all the other sides, but at least they had the good sense not to refer to it as The Hex, which is still the most profoundly bad MMA marketing idea this side of The YAMMA. According to Dream’s announcement, this cage won’t become their go-to surface for all events from now on. Instead, they plan to hold one special cage event each year, presumably to keep that wrathful God(zilla?) from destroying their island nation.

white cage is cool, as would be a red one. But I really dislike the shape of the thing.

looks pretty cool i guess.lots of room.
having a once a year caged event sounds like a pretty good plan

I hate Cage Potato. For some reason, my browser always prompts me for a download when I try to click a link from here to there.

I like the look.
It has a certain sophistication the octagon doesn't which probably stems from their cage being white as opposed to being grey and black.
But we will just have to wait and see how well a fight actually looks inside the thing.
Looking at the angles of the thing it looks like it might be a bit tricky to get the feel for it.

Yeah, but I'd be curious to see how sophisticated a white cage looked once it's stamped with bloody faceprints.

i don't think any color other than black would do well for television recordings.
