UFC Fight Pass Review - After Singapore Event

This "review" is not going to talk about the fight library that much, although briefly I will touch on it here, for me at least, it is a little difficult to find specific fights. It also isn't really the full library since you can't watch any of the Fox cards which I understand, but am disappointed in. They have a lot of Fox cards now and to not have those fights available is baffling to me. The fight library also suffers from what I am really here to talk about, the poor video player.

These issues are visible in both prelims and on the single fight videos, only event replays don't have this problem for the VOD versions. The Main Card for Singapore and all of the PPVs I have watched previously on UFC.tv don't have these problems, they just need to make it work like that, why haven't they? I really don't know.

When watching content with the issues, upon making it full screen, the video does not fill the entire screen, leaving black bars to the left and right, as well as not auto hiding the player/video controls. Now this not a matter of old fights being 4:3, that I understand. This is any individual fight and the Singapore prelims. I have included a picture of it below. The picture is using the single fight replay of GSP Vs Hendricks, had I watched it as part of the entire event replay it would have been fine. I did not and this is what you see.

They really need to fix this for me to want to continue after the trial. But other than this issue and the lack of a "full" library, everything is pretty smooth. The video quality is good, the player they use during PPVs and today's main card is spectacular. The way they add the markers in for event replays is really cool. It is all good except for this other video player that just appears outdated. Again hopefully they iron out the issues as this is very early on in the process and at the moment is free, hard to get too upset just yet.
Thank you for reading, please help get this resolved by pointing out to the UFC on twitter and their support email, if you have anything else you noticed or thoughts for me leave them below!
