I thought ESPN had listened to the criticism of their coverage of UFC 101. They did a much better job with UFC 102. Tonights Fight Night coverage is terrible! Adverts between rounds -the majority of which seem to be station idents, not even paying advertisers- and over the fighters' entrances. And as for that bloody sound level... WTF? We're clearly back to square one, and I fear for the coverage of UFC 103. This settles it for me; I'll record Saturday's event, then I can fast forward through the adverts when I watch it on Sunday.
It's a fight night. EVERY broadcasting of a fight night has been the same. Free on Spike in America = many more ads. As the UK are getting the feed via ESPN vis Spike, when america goes to a break we also do.
103 will be the same as 102.
If the Nate Diaz fight goes to a decision then ESPN coverage is going to end before the fight...
They will broadcast till the end. Don't worry.
