Fight Week Kicks Off: Arriving in Atlanta
Jeremy Botter: I've traveled across much of the world over the past three years, flitting here and there to cover Ultimate Fighting Championship events. The mystery of the thing started to wear off roughly around UFC 116. Don't get me wrong - this is a fantastic job, and I feel privileged to do it every time I leave for the airport, both coming and going.
What I'm trying to say, I guess, is that it's been a long time since a UFC main event truly captured my attention the way that this grudge fight between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans has. I've wanted to see this fight ever since Jones won the belt, mostly because there are so many interesting storylines going into it. I don't need to rehash them here. It's just an intriguing thing on so many different levels.
So yeah, I'm pretty excited about this fight. I just arrived in Atlanta, where I'll spend the week covering the event with fellow Caged In correspondent Jonathan Snowden. We're going to provide you with a ton of written content from this week, to be sure, but we're also going to provide you plenty of video as well. Stay tuned for that stuff starting tomorrow.
What's this you're reading, then? It's our little behind-the-scenes diary of a UFC fight week. Jonathan and I will take you behind the scenes and bring you the little encounters that you don't see in stories or on video. We'll update this UFC 145 Fight Week Diary with anecdotes and stories that don't warrant their own post, and we'll post the occasional photo of cool stuff you might be interested in.
