The UFC production staff has been working overtime as of late but you certainly wouldn’t know it based on the quality of the material surfacing from their offices as of late. Over the weekend the team unveiled two new previews attached to the Ultimate Fighter 15 and UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans.
As might be expected the UFC 145 clip focuses heavily on the fractured relationship between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former title-holder Rashad Evans. The two face off on April 21 in Atlanta where they will not only fight for the divisional belt but to settle a personal score created when Jones, then a teammate of Evans, expressed a willingness to fight him for the belt.
Meanwhile, TUF 15 features 135-pound king Dominick Cruz and rival Urijah Faber coaching teams of lightweights/welterweights on FX in a new “real time” format including live fights every Friday night. Much as the sport has evolved so has the show, a point made in the attached preview. The first episode airs March 9.
