Ridiculously good that is and clearly the UFC has the right idea with this show in creating new stars. There were three main objectives with the hour long show.
- Paint Jon Fitch as a worthy challenger, and provide some detailed history about his upbringing
- Same process for Roger Huerta and Kenny Florian
- Paint Brock Lesnar as a real fighter instead of hyping up his WWE days
While the GSP/Fitch fight is a given for the hardcore fans, most casual fans still do not know who Fitch is. I thought the show did a great job of letting the casual fan know just exactly who Jon Fitch is and where he came from. While GSP is bordering on superstar status, I think they showed just enough of him to let people know who Fitch is fighting. Great job in realizing that Fitch needs more exposure instead of giving a lot of time to GSP.
