Media Journal – Men and Women in Media… Journal Entry #14

Media Journal #14


Every year I catch the new season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” It’s a reality T.V. show that pits MMA fighters against each other to see who can win a UFC contract. Yes, it’s a reality show so they do play up the drama and play pranks and do that fun stuff. But I enjoy it because it’s a true REALITY show in every sense of the original meaning - it’s TRUE LIFE. These fighters are training hard and sweating and bleeding, and at the end of every episode they need to square off against each other in the cage and beat the crap out of their opponent for ten minutes. You definitely can’t fake that.


What sets this season aside from the rest is that this is the first time that females are competing in the Ultimate Fighter house.


“Hit the breaks you sonofabitch!” the detractors scream at me. “Females should not be fighting in MMA!”


Maybe you’re right, but at the end of the day it’s a woman’s choice to step into that caged octagon and throw her fists into someone else’s face and possibly eat some fists herself, and isn’t that true women’s empowerment?
I wrote about pornography a few blogs ago and how it does not empower women, at least not for me. But when I watch these women in the cage and practicing mixed martial arts - yes, it is an art - I am completely blown away, impressed, turned on, excited, and ultimately I realize that women are not that different than men, despite the fact that mass media tries to tell me otherwise.


Maybe I am a sick and twisted bastard for enjoying women competing. Sure, I can take that. But consider this - maybe you’re just a jerk who doesn’t want to see women compete just as hard as men do. That’s cool. I understand that. Nobody wants to see a woman get hurt, but isn’t that what women are fighting against? The sympathy card? Especially women in MMA. They don’t need your sympathy, and they sure as hell don’t need to be protected. Hell, half these women on this show could kick my ass up and down the street. Maybe I need their protection.


Hold up, I meant to say ALL the women on the show could kick my ass.
At the end of the day this is a women’s choice to compete in MMA just as it is a women’s choice to enter the pornography world, but there is a difference in consequence of those choices and how men will view you.


Consider that.

Well, my first amateur kickboxing match was a success. I went three, two minute rounds and fought some character at his own gym. I whooped on him from start to finish, and needless to say, I was fucking tired by the time it was over.

My friends and family asked if they heard me screaming while I was fighting. Quite honestly, I don’t remember a thing! All I remember were a few select times I had my opponent on the run. His eyes were rolled in the back of his skull and he had no idea where the hell he was. During the second round they had to stop the fight and give the guy a standing eight count because I was whooping on him too much. He was out of it.

I was laying all I had into that fight. It wasn’t for my family or my friends, or somehow impress anybody. I’m very glad that my friends and fam were there to support, and I am extremely stoked I got a shiny trophy out of it, but this was for me.

Between full-time work, school, my band, and life’s other responsibilities, I managed to train and work hard for this bout. I went in there and laid it down.

I have no idea if I’ll ever fight again. While it was viciously entertaining for me, my brain was bouncing off the sides of my skull like a pinball after the match was over. I’ll take some time off of training for a bit and see how I’m feeling after. For now, I have London to look forward next Saturday
