Is it possible to have the option to revert back to the old layout?

It was very convenient being able to see all the opponents records and the promotions the fight took place for in a nice concise layout.

I urge you to reconsider. This is a huge step backwards in terms of user experience.

Specifically, I find the following problematic:
  • You've gone from having a lot of information visible at a glance to having only 2-3 fights visible when extended
  • Cancelled fights are given equal size to real fights, not easily distinguishable at all from draws or NC
  •  The most essential information that's been hidden is the event name/promoter and the weight class. There's a difference between easily understanding a fighter's career and having to click and scroll a lot to do it.
  • The same thing with losing the flags - for international fighters, you could, at a glance, see when they've moved away from their local scene, for example.

If you feel like you absolutely must hide some of the data behind a click, everything that used to be in the four main boxes should be easily visible. The stuff below can go, I guess: odds, payout, referee, music and things like "#35 GREATEST KNOCKOUT OF ALL TIME". Something like this: https://i.imgur.com/8zzvT3m.png

Though from a user's perspective, there is no need to change anything at all. The site was great. Someone alluded to there being a non-apparent reason for the new design - just a wild guess but if it's to protect from scraping, you're wasting your time. And annoying the rest of the users in the process.

It's much harder to browse the details on the fight pages now. That was probably the best/most useful feature of this site (alongside prediction game if you like that). Detail view takes up too much space while before you could see all relevant info easily. & eevn then it's hard to see what's going on. Eg I just looked at a fighter with a 0-1 record, but their pro fight list shows 3 losses. I guess only 1 was an MMA bout? Before it was easy to see just with a glance, now it takes much more effort to find out. I have to click details, scroll up and down the page, find the small text that says what type of bout, while before it was all there to be seen immediately.

I agree with the above guy basically.


Looks like another 'mobile friendly redesign' making a site uglier and less pleasing to use to me...

FYI a round of small tweaks was just made based on feedback and observations from everyone.  There will be more tweaks and enhancements to come.

I'd also consider removing cancelled fights from the main list. Maybe add them below the real fights?

@martj42 we are contemplating some options with regards to cancelled bouts. Several things we're considering!

Hey Gregory appreciate the feedback. Sorry didn't know about the pepe thing, I just picked the first random pic on my computer. Definitely appreciate you putting the records back up at least, it's a big help when skimming through fighters' history.

I think the cancelled fights are very important and should stay/not be moved.You can see about injuries,if their opponent pulled out of a fight a month ago and they are getting a short notice fight means they had a recent camp,all kinds of reasons it's helpful for picking fights.Pretty much agree with everything else people are saying though.Except now I Just noticed the cancelled fights you still have to click info to see who withdrew etc. I guess I don't really care anymore,it'll just end up being whatever it is.

I think the new layout has already been improved significantly. A few more tweaks to come.

Agreed, I'd like to be able to see the country the fight took part in too without having to click on the event itself.

The weight class not being instantly visible too is a tad annoying, especially when making picks.

It's been improved significantly since the original change - good job.

The only thing I would change now would be to add the weight class to the unexpanded view. Maybe some flags, too, here and there.

Kuma I feel like you're just constantly on the blob these days and basically just log on to tell everyone how everything about the site sucks. You weren't like this at all when I first joined.

So some things aren't to your preference. That's life. I don't like the new mail icons but I'm not going to start screaming and flinging **** over it.Tapology is still the best MMA site on the web. What--would you prefer to slum it in chatango on Junkie or the circle jerk of ****tardery that is sherdog?
