"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."

UFC President Dana White discusses the possibility of eliminating a repeat of Kalib Stanes vs. Nate Quarry from UFC 83 by making the Octagon smaller. Would less real estate give elusive fighters like Lyoto Machida more problems inside the cage? Or would we just see a fenced in version of rope-a-dope? Smaller Octagon -- are you pro or con?
