    Like Strikeforce: Lawler vs Shields.

    I thought the full catalogue was supposed to be available? They've had more than enough time to upload everything.

    The search engine is still terrible too.

    I've watched a few of the Strikeforce events and don't remember them blurring anything.

    The rights to the video library of the later Strikeforce events are still under an exclusive contract with Showtime.

    Has anyone noticed that the PRIDE library looks like it was ripped from YouTube? Terrible quality, and the search function makes it impossible to find anything.

    I think fight pass is great, I have no issues finding fights. Sheilds vs. Lawler is on there you just have to find it.

    I love fight pass, I watch an old PRIDE fight probably every night and the live events alone..especially the Invicta FC cards

    Search function is simple.

    Just type in the fighter you're looking for...Bam, all of his/her fights.

    Once they've got your subscription and your money, the incentive to improve their products lessens.

    Ie. MMA fans continually prove stupid enough to pay for products that aren't worth paying for, so why would the UFC bother improving those products?
