    Ok that might be worth looking at too. If the 6 grand one is a bit dodgy. Looking at SMAI brand.Which does run towards the cheaper end of the market.

    In theory we want the option to run fights out of it.

    Elevation. Does that go up and down or just extra to be fixed off the ground?

    A higher base was created in case we wanted to elevate the cage.

    I have seen em to closer to $8k. If you want a floor mount and are using mats, then its more like $1,000 per side, plus mats...

    Do you want floor-mounted, elevated but relatively fixed, or something that can be dissembled and moved?

    Floor mounted is much cheaper.

    One of the bitch things about a cage is that you get what you pay for. If you need a pro setup, it's worth it to build or buy a pro setup. A cage needs to take a beating and not fall apart. Having fighters injured when a rattle trap cage caves in on them will cost a hell of a lot more than a well built cage with all the bells and whistles.
