Post Modern Intricacies of MMA Cage Fighters http://current.com/items/90013287_post-mod... In 1993 mixed martial arts cage fighting was introduced to the United States. With its meteoric rise in popularity the sport and its members evolved dramatically, creating a unique culture based on intelligent aggression and strategic violence. To illuminate the post modern intricacies of MMA cage fighters I shadowed Kurtis Cloward for more than two weeks as he prepared for a cage fight in April 2009. The following 18 minute documentary explores the MMA fighter as a complex and sometimes dichotomous being – one that embodies the new post modern contributor to the future. Producer's Note: As a Graduate student in the M.A. Organizational Communication program at Queens University of Charlotte, I produced this short film for my final thesis project.
