Lets say a new fighter debuts in the UFC and is fighting in the prelims. I am wondering if these fighters are well known in their hometown? Things are different now, less UFC in the 2000s and so it was in a way harder to get in but when you did, it seemed like everyone knew your name because back then there was less social media stars and so a UFC fighter would get more exposure due to the nature of times. But what about now? At the very least, do MMA fighters who are on their way to be in the UFC happen to be at least famous in their town?
