ESPN generally only covers the big title fights briefly. Too much other stuff to devote coverage to. On the other hand, I've noticed quite an increase in newspaper coverage-my local paper (The Washington Post) regularly covers UFC PPVs and highlights the major fights, plus does an occasional piece on certain fighters-they once did a great Houston Alexander article.
Living in the NW we are a hot bed for MMA and I tried to get the Seattle Times interested and said I would point them in the rioght direction so they did not look stupid and they were not interested at all for print or online and I sent them a breif snippet of all of the the ex-UFC champs that are either from or train in the NW, Barnett, Couture, Pulver, Mo, Lindland(nonchamp), etc.
