    Now that ESPN has taken over, the UFC headlines are really prominent. Often I am seeing them before I have a chance to see the fight myself. Is there an app or plugin that could automatically blur out fight results?

    Edit: specifically referring to Youtube, FB and Reddit

    Don’t go on the computer or cellphone till you watch the fights imo.

    Don't go to social media or youtube before you see the fight or unfollow them before the fight if you know you are not gonna be able to see it live.

    Sounds like your keyboard is running low on water. May need to add some.

    Navigate carefully until you’ve seen the fights. But if you’re a social media “follower” you’ve put yourself in that position. So that’s on you.

    You don't have to go onto Youtube, facebook or reddit.

    If you are on youtube, sign out or clear your preferences.

    I use those resources for school and for news, so there's an overlap. Don't really 'follow' could give af about twitter/ig. I guess it's part of the massive uptick in exposure since the buyout.

    How?

    Turning off the computer and phone isn't an option for people who don't want to give that company any of your money. I usually just squint my eyes while (navigating..cough) and hope for the best lol.

    Don't go to any of those sites until you've seen the fights...?
