The first installment of this series discussed the assertion that a cage is safer than a ring. As a quick follow-up, the main point of the column – that the very idea of a “cage” hurts MMA’s image – would seem to be confirmed by all the recent nonsense comparing MMA to dogfighting. Naysayers see mixed martial artists as caged animals, bred for mayhem. It will be an important battle in the coming years to challenge that notion.

Great article. Better then 90% of the other articles that are full of bias one way or the other.
