My boxing obsessed (and MMA-averse) friend says MMA should be held in a ring, and ticket sales will increase. How the hell would that happen? I asked. He said "you'd see the action better, and you'd get boxing fans to watch."
My friend has some interesting ideas. drives me crazy. i said "MMA is branded on the cage. Every training center has installed one, at great expense. The Octogon is the symbol of what MMA is."
No he said, you'd double viewership if it was replaced with ropes.

What other thundering arguments besides this video should i tell my friend to please snap out of his crazy MMA in a ring idea?
