Cultural Purpose: In 2016 I attended my first big MMA show, UFC 205. Aside from the grandeur of the fights, and the experiences surrounding them, I observed how MMA Media worked for the first time. Watching legends like Michael Bisping and Dominick Cruz work the Fox Sports desk, and seeing journalists like Ariel Helwani interview talent, I gained new respect for the industry. This trip also triggered something inside of me which set me on a journey to work in MMA media as a profession. The purpose of this website is two fold. First, as a required element for a class at Rutgers University, but also as a jump off point for a career in Mixed Martial Arts. Five, or ten, or fifteen years from now this website and this post will still be around to look back, archiving the humble beginnings of my career in MMA.
Technical production processes: Technically speaking, this website will be easy to maintain for the time being. Using the WordPress editing tools I can easily maintain an active site. Also, having the other members of the Strategic Presentations website as editing tools will (hopefully) keep me updated on any drastic issues.
