You couldnt do it in the ring because of ropes..
I've said this for years and HATE it.... you'll hear rogan go on and on about how we should just let them jockey for position and work but in more cases than not the ref takes no initiative... meanwhile, we have to watch MINUTES get eaten up while nothing much gets done... I cant stand the cage because of it and I really wish more refs would break in and separate the fighters
