About MMA

MMA (mixed martial arts) is one of the world’s fastest growing sports and is one of the most dynamic and exciting full contact combat sports on the planet.  Mixed martial arts is essentially a sport in which fighters of any martial discipline, such as boxing, karate, jiu-jitsu, wrestling and judo compete under common rules that allow kicking, punching and grappling techniques, both stand-up and on the ground. Such fighting has gone on for many years and can be traced as far back as ancient Greece where a sport known as Pankration was popular which was a combat sport that featured range of grappling and striking techniques. Similar styles of combat have existed throughout the ages but none have ever attracted worldwide attention until the advent of the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the USA in 1993.
