Knowing win or lose, Tito Ortiz will get more time on the microphone than the person he fought.

The introduction with the gladiator putting on his armor and sword. I understand the similarities but I don't feel it outweighs the differences.

When they waste the last 30+ minutes of the PPV recapturing the evening's events instead of simply showing the under card fights.

Honestly I'm happy with their production, especially when compared to Elite-XC or Affliction. I know they are the most experienced, but it really shows.
Pretty much agree with all of that.

The gladiator thing is dead cheasey and uberghey.

3. The commercials, especially when they air an event on Spike and it's supposed to start at a certain time, but actually starts a couple of hours later because of all the commercials. Talk about a waste of time.

2. When they put an entire weight division on hold for six months because they made the idiotic decision to have the champion as one of the coaches on TUF.

1. Whe the audience is booing, especially when it's obvious that it's because they don't have a clue about MMA or when they boo a fighter because they are in love with his opponent.

Oh, something that really vexes me is when they go to an ad break and it has a voiceover from Goldy saying 'Stay tuned for more non-stop UFC action'. It's not non-stop if it has ad breaks!!!

Another thing I thought of is when they have a sponsored movie tie-in and Rogan has to do the obligatory interview with one of the actors. Especially when you know that it's their first time actually watching MMA and Rogan asks "So who is your favorite fighter?"

The actor gets that rapid eye motion trying to think of something and you can pratically hear their PR manager off camera whispering: "Iceman, say Iceman."

Actor: ""The Iceman"...he's...ah...awesome! Really like watching him fight!"

And they always have to show the celebrities at the event to try to make it more important. Judges who dont know shyt about what the fighters are doing when they are on the ground all they know is boxing and takedowns you can tell by their scoring.

Bad reffing, is what pisses me off not judging. If by 3 or 5 rounds, both fighters are standing it's the fighters fault if the judges make a bad call. Judging is a subjective thing, so if you don't win by knockout or submission I say it doesn't really matter who gets the win. Reffing on the otherhand is what I have issue with(cough Mazzagatti). Some of the calls I see are so bad it's pitiful, they get too excited sometimes and make irrational decisions. The refs should always be bigger guys that keep their cool and know the mma rules better than anyone else. The Anthony Johnson thumb in eye incident being the biggest load of crap I've ever seen, Mazzagatti should never ref again after that one.

I hate that everyone compares Dana White to Don King. Dana aint that bad.

I hate the stupid reasons for which TUF/Pro guys get kicked out: Jessie got kicked out of his finals for kicking out a window yet is somehow given a fight anyway. Sobral is kicked out entirely for holding a choke after the bell yet BJPenn does the same thing but no comment. None of the teleprompt guys (JoeRogan, Mike Goldberg) go off script even when something/some decision is totally off the mark. The UFC caters to viewers/q ratings when serving up fights-regardless that Rarshard Evans is 197-0 he isn't even talked about for a title belt yet.

Tito got royally f-ed in his last fight and with Rarschard. Randy Coutere wasn't even mentioned when he was in the entourage of Cain Hernandez.
