Love the arena idea, maybe something to make the sides more dangerous?

Id like to play on the arena side by side with a friend via LAN or Internet. That would be fun.

Random idea. Give the option of playing the mode mentioned in a Virtua Fighter type of environment aka you get knocked out or get ringed out. It would be interesting if the AI was done right. It would also be a whole lot of fun if playing with another person.
