Mixed Martial Arts (“MMA”) originates from the full contact sport of Vale Tudo in Brazil, in which competitors use a variety of martial arts skills. MMA was created in the United States in 1993 with minimal rules, and was promoted as a competition by the Ultimate Fighting Championships (“UFC”) to determine the most effective martial art for unarmed combat situations.
To most observers of the early UFC competitions, it appeared that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or other forms of ground fighting was the dominant martial art. However, it wasn’t long before professional fighters realized that if they wanted to be competitive among the best, they needed to train in additional disciplines. UFC fighters began to morph into well-rounded, balanced fighters that could fight standing or on the mat. This blend of fighting styles and skills became known as mixed martial arts.
Today, the UFC is the premier organization in mixed martial arts. With more than 40 fights every year, the UFC hosts most of the top-ranked fighters in the world. Events are held not only in the United States, but in many countries all over the globe.
