In watching footage of Chris Cyborg, I became intrigued and captivated. She has the ability to obliterate opponents in the cage, yet she also takes charitable, humanitarian actions with fellow MMA fighter Justin Wren to help displaced and impoverished people in Africa and South America. This dichotomy, along with the inherent contrast in her dubbed name (Cyborg is a portmanteau of the Greek “kybernetikos” which is a self governing machine, and “org” a living organism) caused me to reflect upon the dual nature of professional fighters, and it inspired me to create a short video that expresses some of these thoughts in the medium of video content.
Thank you for watching!
