We need to petition, bitch, moan and complain about this to get them to change it....

If they need to have ads then silent ads, banners or something would be better.

How can they justify people paying for this channel when we dont get to see it all?

Just had an advert then, and when it came back Almeida was already half way to the octagon!

This ad break inbetween every round will fry my head. Does this happen on the pay per view in America. Maybe its gonne take them a while to get their editing right. The replay on Monday night is only on for 2 hours.
