Im tired of hearing the whining because you paid for a premium channel and they decided to give you a gift and you whine about it. Tough.

Thanks for the negs. Grow some balls and sign your name.
Sure i am paying for the channel, but i only bought the channel for the UFC (and premiershp games), so yea. Thing is you have to pay 50 dollars because of how big the UFC is in america. Over here, no one really knows about the UFC, pretty much none of my mates are into it, so it would be really clumsy to start charging boxing ppv prices. It clearly isnt the UFC's fault for ads either it is down to the channel.

The previous channel the UFC was on did not have any ads in between rounds and why the heck would the UFC want to break for ads when they are about to announce future ufc events, fights etc? This would boost the publicity of the organisation to the UK audience. It is the channels fault, not the UFC's and quite frankly ESPN uk is a joke.

Also i dont know if your last part was directed at me but i didnt leave you any neg rep at all. I always sign when ever i leave reputation.
