This is why Mark Burnett is the king of reality tv

The Ishe-Ahmed fight had more entertainment value than the whole of "The Next Big Champ". Mark knows how to pick out people who make good reality tv. While "The Next Big Champ" was insipid and hopeless, The Contender has turned out to be a great experience. Today's fight had everything you could hope for in a battle - machismo, cowardice, cunning, egotism, fear, perseverance, redemption and above all, heroism. A really cool experience.
