The production team behind the Ultimate Fighting Championship has just released the first episode of UFC Primetime which features the UFC 145 grudge match between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.
Watch the evolution of Jon Jones and Rashad Evans’ rivalry, then go inside training camps as they prepare to meet again…. this time as opponents.
– This episode of UFC Primetime, does an excellent job of hyping up this match up. I have already been excited about this bout, but the way they detailed the rivalry and history between the two fighters makes it even more compelling.
– I expected this UFC Primetime series to build on Jones’ star power and to make fans more invested and attached to the dominant champion. After watching it though, it makes just me want to root for the underdog in Evans even more. Both Jones and Jackson had the opportunity, but I felt like they weren’t able to portray their side of the story well enough to make fans want to side with them on this whole ‘betrayal’ issue.
Episode 2 and 3 will air on FX on April 13 and April 20 respectively.
