Mixed martial arts (MMA) is the fastest growing sport in the world. Superstars such as Georges St Pierre, Anderson Silva, Rhonda Rousey and Connor McGregor are now household names. MMA is a full-contact combat sport that allows both striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, using techniques from other combat sports and martial arts. The competitors for MMA fights come from any and all styles of fighting.
The roots of MMA can be traced as far back as the 1920’s, when Carlos Gracie and Helio Gracie organized Vale Tudo events called the “Gracie Challenges”. Participants of these events would battle it out using various forms of martial arts disciplines. Since these humble beginnings, MMA has rapidly risen to one of the world’s fastest growing and most popular sports. Modern forms of MMA can be linked back to ancient Olympics and the well known hand to hand combat system of fighting know as Pankration. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) came about in 1993 and grew to what we now know as the biggest MMA organisation in the world. The sport of MMA then evolved to include more rules, regulations, testing and eventually grew into the massive sport we see today. MMA has grown so rapidly we now see it spread across the globe.
