These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Cliché Storm: A guy is humilated by a jerk, then train himself hard by a wise mentor, beats the crap out of the jerk and finally gets the girl. How original.
Point for point, this film served as a pretty spot-on remake of The Karate Kid several years before the actual Karate Kid remake, replacing karate with MMA similar to how the official remake replaced karate with Kung Fu.
What an Idiot: The acrobatic fighter who faces Ryan gets a solid one. The guy spend most of the fight giving an elaborate but utterly useless exhibition of capoeira/breakdance/whatever and predictably gets knocked out with a single punch.
