With the highly anticipated grudge match between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Rashad Evans just weeks away, the UFC has rebooted its immensely popular series ‘Primetime’ to feature the two as they prepare for their championship fight at UFC 145 on April 21st in Atlanta, Georgia.
The series, which has documented pre-fight camps for fights starting with Georges St. Pierre vs. BJ Penn II at UFC 94 in 2009, has since shown coverage of training camps for other fights such as “Rampage” Jackson vs. Rashad Evans (UFC 114), Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC 121), and Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit (UFC 143).
Similar to HBO’s 24/7, which shows the routines and preparations for multiple sports, including boxing, NASCAR, and hockey, ‘Primetime’ has also been praised for its in-depth coverage inside the lives of UFC fighters.
The first episode for Jones vs. Evans premiered last week on Fuel TV. The episode details the beginnings of the relationship between the two, but focuses on the much-discussed split following Jones’ championship win in March 2011. The UFC has posted the entire video, which can be seen below:
