UFC: A Brief History

Mixed martial arts (MMA) has its origins going back hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of years to an ancient Olympic combat sport called pankration which was practiced in Greece and Rome.

Over time, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has evolved into various styles of martial arts. At first, MMA was an amalgam of boxing and wrestling where combatants would strike with both hands and feet before grappling on the ground for grappling matches.

MMA fighters form an intimate community, all sharing mutual support for one another – something which makes MMA training and work so enjoyable and fulfilling. If you’re in search of a hobby related to fighting, I strongly suggest checking out UFC. You won’t regret it!
