In one sentence we say it bring real world into the picture, but in the next sentence we say they cant actually hold onto the cage which is why I would rather see all or none. Just me though, I prefer to see full work on the ground, I don't really enjoy seeing guys getting stuffed against it and not being able to use it defensively.
I agree plus I also agree with the guy earlier that said the ring gives it alittle more class, this is a big reason why it took so long for the sport to get big in the states, the japanese have been holding these types of events for years and never had that "human cock-fighting" stigma to it. Oh and as far as being dnagerous with guys falling out of the ring do what the IFL did and put a 4 foot wide platform around the outside of the ring, works pretty good for them.
