    The constant pop ups and virus redirecting and spin to win Bullshit is making this site unusable. is anyone else having this issue? it's only this site no other one does it. I'm using a pop up blocker now and every time I click something it tells me 12-20 get blocked. it's also running much faster this way too.

    Mods and you Please look into this? it's only on my phone browser not on my pc.

    It's called an ad-blocker, buddeh.

    yeah i noticed it on my phone last night as well. This is the only site that does it (the play by play threads are the worse, can't make it more than 2 pages without a virus popup locking up my phone).

    Guy, you can complain to the mods all you want. They can't remove the virus on your device.

    The virus will get worse until you pay somebody to remove it.

    Yeah i've had the same issue on my phone. Which I don't have on any other website even the one's you would suspect ;)

    But I usually like to come on sherdog when i'm all up in my bed about to catch some Z's but I like to read some forums can't do that shit anymore now that I get 200 pop ups that cause my phone to vibrate and freak out when coming to this sight. On the computer it seems to be fine. But also responding on here is also very slow on my phone like 2 minutes worth to type a sentence

    Pay somebody?

    Just go get Avast! Free or something + MalwareBytes Free with AdGuard or AdBlock+, No Script, or any other decent popup blocker.

    Also, as much as I understand sites needing to generate revenue and advertising on sites taking a crucial hit over the years with pop up blockers, just giving space to fucking malicious, sketchy sites that host malware, spyware, trojans, etc is not how to do it.

    You're literally forcing everyone to not support the site. Nobody wants redirects from some shit tier ass movie or get some shit virus when you want to post about Conor.

    I used to whitelist this place but fuck if I ever do it again.

    So if you believe in these free options, why don't you use them to remove the viruses on your phone?

    I don't have this problem with the Sherdog site. Why is that?

    it only happens on the mobile website

    it looks like one of the sponsor ads uses javascript to hijack the browser. disable javascript and itll never happen to you

    there are threads about this all the time. the mobile site sucks

    I don't have viruses on any of my devices. Never had a problem with any of the programs I listed. Adblock, Adguard, No script are awesome and I know they have mobile programs (Adguard and ABP) at least. Avast! is a decent free antivirus. Don't really like the mobile version, but the pc version is really good for your average PC user.

    I was suggesting what the other guy should do

    Nobody in 2017 should fucking pay anyone to remove a simple virus thats not like polymorphic or a complete ass of a worm, etc.

    This is the Survival list for the Average PC user and it wont cost you a thing

    Avast! or another decent, light weight antivirus

    Popup blocker (AD block plus, AdGuard, No Script)

    Malwarebytes Free.

    There's a lot of other options but these are a solid start and arent resource heavy at all, though Adblock can use a decent amount of CPU for some reason at times.

    Sometimes if I click sherdog.com instead of the direct link to UFC discussion 2, I get redirected by this huge URL that looks like some 3rd world IRS refund chit. I use Adblock anyway to be fair

    Honestly, the site is borderline unusable on an iPad.

    That's the exact reason I don't post here and don't really use this site as much as I used to.

    It's the absolute worst!!
