It's a big step forward on the business end of things. This isn't something "fight fans" can get excited about, but what it basically means is that the UFC has expanded to the point where Lorenzo and his position is needed full-time, and it also shows they're quite serious in terms of expanding the brand internationally (eg. in Brazil).
