If i pay for a PPV, i expect to see all of it, and not expect to have adverts in between LIVE ACTION. Hopefully they are only doing it because this event is free...

You are paying for a channel currently. Did you spend 50 dollars on the ppv?

I dont think they have even shown any fight build ups tonight. The UFC have been pushed for time so decided not to air them. There's nothing to hype for these early fights anyway.

But yeah the adverts are horrible. Really messes up the dynamics of watching the fight. All for the sake of two adverts. They way they cut away too is just brutal trying to squeeze it in.

Someone needs to get them told.

I could not be bothered in the end. The adverts ruined the whole thing for me, the point of it being live is to feel like your actualy there, could not hear the coaches, commentators, could not see how the fighters looked in the corner, just a absolute joke.

Here is a link to espn complaints, you have to pick your country, I already sent mine.
