    Sherdog sold out to sleazy advertisers again. I can't go 2 minutes without getting forwarded to one of these spam sites. Things were good for a year or so but now the site has been rendered unusable. Very ghetto!

    It's the webmasters way of telling everyone 'Stop going to sherdog. We'll annoy you with ads until you stop visiting the site because we're being paid to.'

    Yep, happening in the app every 10 seconds. Unusable.

    I now access sherdog through an app called brave ad blocker and it did the trick, no more issues.
