Since the octagon is so massive and essentially circular in shape, a fighter can dance around and move away from the opponent alot more easily.
PRIDE fights are for the whole, more exciting than UFC fights,because the ring forces them to right.
The restarts? big deal, it takes 5 seconds to put the fighters to the middle of the ring.
The ring is dangerous? I always thought that claim was bullshit,how many fighters have fallen out the ring and injured themselves that they can't continue to fight? few,if any
Mate, don't even humour the guy beebs, he doesnt know what he's talking about!
