According to a recent interview with UFC President Dana White, he mentions the fact that he and matchmaker Joe Silva are considering the possibility of making the Octagon smaller than it is today. Is making the cage good or bad for the fighters? Will MMA fans like the idea of a smaller Octagon? Well nothing is official yet, but the idea is still there.
From Dana White:
“Actually, we’ve been talking about making the Octagon smaller. We’re considering making it smaller. [UFC matchmaker] Joe Silva wants it. I think he wants to turn the thing into a [expletive] bathtub. Have them fight in a little tollbooth.”
