    Given that our trio of commentators are always biased, and always screaming what the fighter they root for is doing good and what he should be doing..... isn't it a little unfair?
    I mean, the fighters can definitely hear them, and this is not only demoralizing/frustrating for the opponent, but also they get 3 top guys giving them tips on what to do to win....

    I think that, if fights are without public, UFC should put the trio away, in a different room, so it is fair for everyone.

    Thoughts?

    Probably more so would influence the judging.

    I remember Poirier saying in the first Conor fight he felt like the media, the UFC, and the fans were all against him... I bet a lot of fighters feel like that in the apex lmao

    3 top guys telling them what to do? I'll give you DC and Dominick, but there is no way I'd ever say Brendan Fitzgerald is a "top guy" at anything.

    I could've swore Yanez overheard what DC was saying about timing jabs with a parry jab and did it and beat Costa tonight.

    Agreed, but I am not saying tonight only.
    There were plenty of fighters that commented already they hear the commentating trio during their fights.
