Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques in competition, from traditional to non-traditional martial arts. Modern MMA became popular in America in 1993 with the UFC’s founding. The UFC was originally conceived as a series of “style vs. style” fights with no rules. They would match fighters of different backgrounds to determine the most effective martial arts for real unarmed combat situations. They would pair up street fighters with amateur wrestlers and so on. As the sport has evolved (including more safety regulations), and become more mainstream, its pay-per-view popularity rivals boxing and professional wrestling.
