In no way am I saying UFC Primetime isn't good. It's an engaging program and a great step forward for the UFC and the sport in general.
But somehow I felt that it didn't seem as epic as 24/7. I just re-watched Pacquaio-De La Hoya 24/7 and it was amazing. Even though I knew that De La Hoya got pounded on by Pacquaio, just by watching 24/7 you feel so engaged with the fighters and their lives - much more so than Primetime.
I'm really not sure why. I have no idea why the atmosphere created by 24/7 is better than that of Primetime. It could be down to the fighters themselves, De La Hoya and Pacquiao have more 'interesting' stories than GSP and Penn do at this point in their careers. Pacquaio particularly because of the Philipines element (the whole country loves him and top Filipino government officials are on the show).
The music in Primetime is great...but somehow 24/7 seems even better.
Just can't put my finger on it. Any ideas?
