**********spoiler UFC 77 results**************************************

What did you enjoy most about the UFC 77 PPV?


Silva KO'ing Franklin
[tally] 290
Sylvia Beating Vera
[tally] 48
Lesnar Signing Announcement
[tally] 110
The Show As A Whole
[tally] 49
Nothing, The Show Sucked

This kinda blew my night, I hadn't seen any of the fights yet

anyway to prevent this stuff from happening, particularly on the main page?

We have no control over the stuff that appears on the main page. It's a different thing entirely. Wish I could do something about it.


If it's a concern, and you're coming here anyway, I would recommend you bypass the main site and just go straight to http://forums.mmanews.com


That's usually what I do.

Yeah pretty much just save the forums page in your favorites to avoid that happening again.

Anyways the main page is there to display news. So they are going to report things as soon as possible. Come straight to the forums.

Also you may want to watch out for the main page as well since once an event has aired in all US timezones it's no longer a spoiler.

Yeah, any page you go to is even worse than that. Sherdog has a big picture of Anderson and gives the result. If you don't want anything spoiled, you pretty much need to be careful.


Main pages are meant for news, they are not supposed to avoid spoilers.
