ESPN Coverage Of Fight Night Is Disgraceful

Adverts between rounds again.. But whats worse is the sound! Its sooooo quite that i have to turn it up about 20 notches so i can hear it, and then as soon as the adverts hit i have to make a dash for the volume button so that they neigbours dont get woken by how loud the adverts are!

Sound is fine now. Wasn't a problem, just to remember to turn tv down during adverts.

Yeah CC, I know there are ALOT of breaks during fight nights. Whenever spike goes to a break so do we.

I thought ESPN had listened to the criticism of their coverage of UFC 101. They did a much better job with UFC 102. Tonights Fight Night coverage is terrible! Adverts between rounds -the majority of which seem to be station idents, not even paying advertisers- and over the fighters' entrances. And as for that bloody sound level... WTF? We're clearly back to square one, and I fear for the coverage of UFC 103. This settles it for me; I'll record Saturday's event, then I can fast forward through the adverts when I watch it on Sunday.

I dont understand the problem with the ads, I wish I got ads instead of paying for PPV's, they dont bother me at all.

If the Nate Diaz fight goes to a decision then ESPN coverage is going to end before the fight...
