Avert your eyes, Nate Diaz is making obscene gestures again

If you were wondering what was up with those quick long shots of the venue mixed in with the Nate Diaz / Benson Henderson fight, it was not some sort of production glitch. It was a result of Nate flipping Benson the bird several times during the fight and FOX using its 5 second delay to save our delicate sensibilities from being shocked by the offensive gesture. It might seem a little silly to edit a raised finger out of a show where guys are pummeling the crap out of each other at 10:30 at night, but FOX and the UFC have advertisers to consider as well and many of them are giant wusses.
