Here is an idea that I did for USA MMA a while back that everyone seemed to love. Pick a fighter that is going to be in a big show that coming week. Plan on spending time with the fighter as much as possible the week of the fight leading up to it...at the gym, hanging out, at their job (if allowed), cutting weight, and as they prepare for the fight. Follow that fighter as he get's taped, warms up, walks out, then after the fight. On their TV show, that was always a big hit with fans, actually seeing the "everyday" life of a fighter and how they juggle everything the week of the fight. It's also great for local fighters because I know the guys that I did that for a while back became crowd favorites because the fans are able to "connect" with that person.
