John McCarthy says UFC prefers smaller cage as it “creates more action”

Former UFC referee and current Bellator pundit John McCarthy believes UFC will purposely use a smaller cage at the APEX facility so fights can be more action-packed.

“Big” John said on Twitter that even though there is a space for the typical 30-foot cage in UFC Apex, they have gone with the 25-foot size as it “creates more action.”

UFC expects to return this upcoming Saturday to Las Vegas where the APEX Institute is, but first the Nevada State Athletic Commission has to vote later today for the return of boxing and mixed martial arts.

That might not seem like e big differences, but it is. There are a lot of fighters that prefer the bigger Octagon because thee’s more space to maneuver and get back if things get messy.
