UFC Primetime: Re-shaping Rashad Evans
All feature sports reporting seeks the same goal: humanizing the subject and showing said subject in a new light for both the hardcore and casual fan.
Doesn't matter if it's a written story, a documentary or an audio recording.
But, the first episode embedded below does what many featured shows do not do: it actually evokes emotion. Even the biggest Jones supporter must feel at least a morsel or two of sympathy and compassion for Evans.
In this episode, he is cast as the underdog (he is) and the guy you feel compelled to root for. Watch and see.
