- MMA (mixed martial arts) is a unique creation.
- When MMA was founded, it was a no-rules atmosphere, anything goes.
- Fighters of all different styles were coming together to fight in the octagon.
- As MMA started to progress over the years, new rules were implemented in order to prevent injuries of the athletes.
- In the early years of UFC it was considered to be an underground violent sport.
- As time progressed, more and more people started to accept it. And now it has become a world-wide mainstream event.
- MMA is a combination of kicking and punching techniques (that come from boxing, kickboxing, thaiboxing, taekwondo ….) as well as wrestling and throws (that come from wrestling, judo …..) and ground game (that come from jiu-jitsu, sambo ....).
- MMA fighters are now experienced of many different forms of martial arts and fighting sports.
