I didn't mind all the commercials since it was basically a free PPV, and we're probably going to get another one when they go back to the UK.

They need more sponsors, though. The same commercials over and over were annoying, and seeing Condom Depot.com on Arlovski's shorts was a trip.

I thought there was a bit much in the side of commercials but hey it was free so I lived with it but I thought after the big "Next" trailer that the main fight was going to start commercial free, it even had a count down to main event in the corner and when it hit one I was like here we go then ooh wait another 5 minutes worth of comercials. Even though I hated the commercials I still appreciate that it was free.

Thanks, it does suck to see that many commercials about the samethings over and over but that's how regular T.V. works, I was just happy the UFC gave us a freebie and was shocked like the rest of the world to see CroCop KO'd in that type of fashion.

Using a DVR and a small delay, you create you own commercial free fight night. Wheee.... Better than subscribing to HBO.

Want a commercial free show? buy the pay per view or download the vids out of the Videos section here. Complaining about the method they use to keep the show free is just whining.

If they're offering it on "free TV", you have to expect to have a lot of commercials going along with it. I'd rather watch the commercials then pay for the PPV. HBO is probably my favorite option.

No kidding. I was at my in-laws house with my wife and daughters. I was trying to promote mma and thoses girls gone wild commercials made it an uphill battle. What a huge disservice to the sport.
