Cage... leave the ring for boxers.

top reasons:
1. Fights have to be moved which could change the tide of a fight imo.
2. seems to have more room.
3. Don't have to worry about fighters getting seriously hurt falling out.

It would suck to see a fighter lose, or die cause he broke his neck falling out the ring.

personally i think the fighters should fight in both for certain events, just to mix things up a little bit . But what they should figure out are what rules they are gonna implement.

Cage is good for wrestling and a ring is good for Striking. In the UFC guys like Randy Couture could push a guy up against the cage but that doesn't really work in a ring. I think Pride fighter were always funner and more fast paced but that could be also because less wrestling and/or dry humping, plus Pride had the finish the fight clause in the decision making which makes fighter like Kos useless.

ring sucks, the fighters constantly have to be careful not to fall threw the ring, for boxing it works, but not when wrestling is involved.

Cage without a doubt

I think cage because it is better for people who rely on take downs.

Both are interesting and offer unique advantages over the other, but I personally prefer the cage. A ring offers too much potential for interference when in one guy's corner, like what I've seen in some old PRIDE fights when guys try to get one fighters hand/foot off the ropes. Can't really do that in a cage.

The cage is great for guys who can't rely on natural ability and need to be able to use the environment the fight is in as a weapon. All a ring does is try to keep the action centered and away from the "walls" where it's supposed to be in the middle of the mat.

i say the ring, for some reason fighters always have more trouble in the cage and i think it will bring the excitement of the fight to a new level.
