WHAT IS MIXED MARTIAL ARTS?

Mixed Martial Arts is the fusion of many different styles of martial arts. While originally in the earlier days of MMA we would have seen athletes simply cross training, i.e training in Muay Thai and wrestling or Brazilian Jujitsu and boxing ect. we now see a full blend of many, many different styles. Mixed Martial arts is effectively a martial art that has taken the aspects of every martial arts that would be considered the most effective inside the octagon and melded them into the closest that we can get to open rules fighting without risking the immediate and serious damage of competitors.

The UFC was originally created to show the world that Gracie Jujitsu (Brazilian Jujitsu) was the most efficient form of fighting in the world - a goal that they easily managed through Royce Gracie's dominance of other fighters that did not know how to grapple. As you can see a melding of styles was needed, a fighter needed to know not only how to strike, but how to wrestle to defend takedowns, and to grapple. Mixed Martial Arts was born through necessity to handle all facets of fighting.

Overtime, comparing the first UFC events to the current ones, it is clear to anyone that the sport has completely evolved - no longer are these street fighters or fighters from a single discipline - these are elite athletes who dedicate their entire lives to this exciting and rapidly expanding sport.

What a strawberry floating fight that was. I had GGG ahead by a couple but tbh I can see how it was given to Canelo. Bit of a joke he's even allowed to fight but still, that was proper warrior gooseberry fool. Unbelievable chins.

Jesus, I'd just assumed Jon Jones was completely done at this point. There really isn't enough of an incentive for the big fighters to avoid PEDs. As long as you're a big draw it doesn't seem to matter what you do.
