The Scrap has recently been leveraging AI, using ChatGPT to create creative combat sports content unlike ever before. Ahead of UFC 293, we asked the AI tool to create a short story about Israel Adesanya, The Last Stylebender and his journey to becoming a UFC champion.
We asked ChatGPT to make it in the style of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Here’s what we got:
In the world of mixed martial arts, there was a fighter named Israel Adesanya, known to all as “The Last Stylebender.” He grew up in the city of Auckland, a place where martial arts was not just a sport – but a way of life. But in his homeland, there existed a unique tradition, one that combined the art of striking with the grace of movement, much like the bending of the elements in the world of Avatar.
Israel was a gifted fighter, but he was not content with merely mastering one discipline. He sought to become a true martial artist, blending the techniques of various fighting styles into a harmonious whole. His journey began in the sprawling dojos of his city, where he studied under the guidance of many masters. From Muay Thai to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he absorbed knowledge like a sponge, adapting and perfecting each technique.
As he trained, Israel discovered an ancient legend that told of a forgotten martial art style, one that could only be unlocked by a chosen few. This art, known as “Stylebending,” was said to be a fusion of all martial arts, granting the practitioner the power to adapt and conquer any opponent. Many doubted its existence, dismissing it as mere myth, but Israel believed.
To uncover the secrets of Stylebending, Israel embarked on a quest that took him to remote temples, hidden deep within the mountains. Along the way, he encountered wise martial artists who shared their wisdom, teaching him the true meaning of balance, discipline, and adaptability. With each lesson, Israel grew stronger, becoming a true master of his craft.
But the path was not without challenges. Israel faced formidable adversaries who tested his resolve. His most formidable foe was a fearsome kickboxer known as “Poatan.” In their battle, Israel was knocked down repeatedly, unable to find his rhythm in the striking department. However, he remembered the lessons of his journey and adapted. With newfound determination, he learned the art footwork, takedown defense and submission escapes. In the end, he triumphed over Poatan, proving that he was not just a striker but a true Stylebender.
Word of Israel’s journey and his mastery of Stylebending spread throughout the world of mixed martial arts. He became a symbol of adaptability and innovation, drawing the attention of the UFC, the ultimate proving ground for fighters. Israel accepted their challenge, stepping into the octagon to face the reigning champion, a fierce warrior known as “The Reaper.”
The battle was epic, a clash of styles and wills. Israel’s striking prowess combined with his newfound adaptability allowed him to weather The Reaper’s attacks and respond with precision strikes. In the final round, Israel unleashed a devastating combination of strikes, knocking The Reaper to the ground and securing his victory.
With the UFC championship belt around his waist, Israel Adesanya had not only become a champion, but a true Stylebender. He had unlocked the power of Stylebending, proving that adaptability and the fusion of various martial arts could overcome any challenge. His journey was not just about winning titles but about inspiring others to push their limits and evolve.
And so, Israel Adesanya, The Last Stylebender, continued to walk his path, always seeking to master new techniques and inspire the next generation of fighters. Like the Avatar who could bend the elements, Israel had mastered the art of bending styles, forever changing the world of mixed martial arts.
