Part of the hype and fun of the fight is listening to whats going on in the corner of each fighter.

tomorrow i'll be complaining to both the UFC and ESPN, but i think i may be p!ssing into the wind

My main concern is that this is going to be a pay channel, yet if they continue with these adverts, we are paying for something we dont get to see... Ok we see all 5 mins of each round, but not the inbetween round interaction, or any of the fight build ups...

Your not paying for the event so stop whining. IIRC you will still have to buy ppv after 101 and 102 like everyone else.
