GOD DAMNIT!!!

I'M JUST HAVING ONE OF THOSE DAYS!!!!

OK, I'm not changing the title again.

Fox ******* Sports Network.

Do you have a source for this? I recall seeing Shogun Rua use a devastating soccer kick in one of his fights.

JAmaya has a little shameless behaviour in the past
There are some old re-runs that air with not much interuption and all the techniques shown. The newer episodes were prodecued with Zuffa's interests in mind, ie: Liddel-Rampage 1 before the UFC bout, Ramapge HL and Hendo HL. These and other Pride FC episodes were produced because there are still contractual obligations by FSN for commercial distribution, however they now answer to Zuffa, not Dreamworks Ent. They (Zuffa) still hasn't announced if it will continue to licence the Pride FC show. Also, since the product is theirs, they can at any time go back to showing the full fights (I highly doubt it).
As for documentation, I don't have anything concrete, but I work for Fox Television Stations in NYC.

You can hear the announcers talking about the damage going on and when it comes back it's almost over.

The only thing I could think is that maybe they are trying to take some of the stomps and soccer kicks out of the TV viewing.

I'm more curious about the black guy that waves to the camera any ways.


yeah your def right...i hate that shit

I gotta agree with the OP it sucks how they cut up the show now, I guess we won't be seeing Pride Unleashed like I mentioned in another thread. I hope Zuffa doesn't touch the DVD's.

It's not just the black guy, its the concerned asian chick, the angry fist shaking mob, and the weird asain guy with the funky glasses.

The way they cut away from the action drives me insane. WHY?!!?!
