2011 Fall MMA Class writing assignmentFiled Under: Classes, Local
This semester many students have the opportunity/requirement of a kick-butt writing assignment. For those whom it is required, you know who you are.
Anyway, here are the ground rules.
You need to watch one of the fights from the TV show, The Ultimate Fighter (fights can be seen here). You could arbitrarily pick one or select one of the top ten fights from TUF – video above has snippets from each fight.
After watching, I want you to write a brief analysis (at least 200 words but no more than 400). The analysis should have a summary of what happened (only a few sentences), analysis of key elements that determined victory and your favorite moments with your explanation of why you liked those parts.
The main focus should be the various elements that you believe determined the fight. What techniques seemed to be most dominant? Striking? Grappling? Conditioning? How might the loser have improved his performance? What made this fight interesting to you?
Draw on your own experience with various techniques while you comment. Don’t fuss about being technical or ultra-knowledgeable. Speak from the heart with and edit once for grammar. Limited usage of slang and industry-standard terms is okay, but if your response reads like a comment on Youtube, I will likely stalk you down and beat you with a rubber hose. (Flexibility will be provided for non-native-English speaking students).
Post your assignment below, using your first name and last initial, listing the fight you watched before the body of your work. This is to be finished before 12/12/11.
Roland Delorme vs. TJ Dillashaw
This fight was ……….
I look forward to your work!
