    The UFC fight pass is the official UFC library where you watch live events and includes rankings other stuff kinda like that but damn does it need some work. Really slow, Bad search results awkward to navigate. Every time I search up a fighter and watch one of their fights I click back and it takes me back to the front page. It's small but having to type up a fighter's name 5 times in a search bar is annoying.

    Also when they released the past PPV or the main event to it instead of letting me watch the video it just takes me back to the home page. It will even let me watch the co-main and stuff like that. Anyone else think that fight pass was rushed and not put together well?

    Fight passes UI and network stability is absolute dog shit . The only thing it has really going for it is the huge back catologue from UFC to Pride as well as live Cage Warriors events . It's the best way to watch old Pride fights so I just deal with it but yeah it's garbage

    Great content but shitty setup. A lot of the times I can’t find certain fights and have to select the event then fast forward. Super annoying

    No shit, UFC is a crap company. Have you seen their friggin merch?

    Just let the brand die already and pay out those funds to the fighters.

    I have the same issue. I can't watch any UFC event that's live or even particularly recent without getting directed back to the home page. I only use it to watch old-as fuck-fights or those from the regional promotions.

    Not everything is on there either.

    Many fighters are missing fights.

    No HOF speeches are on there anymore, interviews, etc, etc.

    It's impossible to search for different orgs, etc.

    They had everything on the old FP. The layout was so much better that you could literally click a tab to where you wanted to go - for organizations, documentaries, etc.

    Yeah with the lower profile fights you can't find them individually you have to fast forward through the whole event which is shitty. If the UFC wasn't so fucking cheap they could higher a handful of tech savvy web designers and make it a million times better .

    Fightpass used to let you pick which camera angle you wanted to watch the fight from, or select either fighters corner audio. That was the best.

    Also, a problem I have is if I spell a fighters name wrong by a letter the search won't pick it up

    I notice that if it's aired on ESPN+ as a fight not a lot of fights you can't watch there. You can find them in the search but when you click on it it brings you to the homepage. I'm pretty sure that's why it did that for you. I noticed it does this with every ESPN+ fight. Also you can add favorites so if you want to watch one fighter you can do that. Still not the best to have to do that but it's something. I noticed though some fights you have to really spell out everything for it to find some match ups. You need to put so and so vs so and so without any misspelling and spelled out in full.

    Sometimes I will spell a fight correctly too and have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page because the first results are different fights on the same card

    Pretty sure they own the right to put Glory kickboxing cards on there too but the site is missing the past 10 cards

    Absolute rip off, IMO a simple google search yields better results
