    I love free cards; especially watching rising contenders and all of that on them

    but it bothers me maybe more than it should that I cant watch the corner speak to their guys between rounds.

    Anybody else?

    I don't watch fights to watch people talk. I watch them to see someone bleed.

    It'd be nice to see corner talk but for a free event I'll take what I can get to be honest.

    I agree.
    I just always grunt when I hear the corner starting to talk and then seeing it cut off

    The commercials do bother me, but not for the reasons you mention. I don't think that Fox/UFC has the timing of the fights and commercials dialed in yet. I find the similarly numerous commercials in college football to be far less bothersome due to their nailed timing.

    That being said, too bad the UFC couldn't get a deal with Showtime or HBO. No commercials and the channels aren't too expensive!

    On the UFC webfeed they show the walk-ins & corner between rounds.

    The downside is that it's about 30 seconds delayed from the live broadcast.

    Very true. I think the awkward timing ticks me off a bit as well

    We hardly get them on the Australian broadcast, maybe 1 commercial break between each fight

    I miss the punditry between rounds but because most free cards don't have Joe Rogan anyway, I don't really care.

    I agree.

    but it gets really annoying seeing the same commercials over and over again.

    If a fight's less exciting or between unknown fighters, the commercials will sometimes have me checking my cell phone or whatever until I look up and realize it's midway through the next round. At least it's free, though.

    It sucks but you gotta deal with it. I guess that's what makes PPV so awesome sometimes.

    Lol, I'm the opposite, I'm not really a fan of any of the Metro guys.
