“Never in a million years did these guys think they were creating a sport.”
-Dana White, President of the UFC
On a quest to find out which martial art was the most effective and useful in a fight, founders of the biggest MMA promotion in the world, Art Davie and Rorion Gracie, decided to compare and analyse different combat disciplines. From this rigorous research, a new sport was born which uses a combination of boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu and many other martial arts. Taking place inside of an eight-sided ring (The Octagon) fighters seamlessly switch between disciplines to conquer their opponent.
These combined skills are now referred to as “Mixed Martial Arts,” a bourgeoning sport that continues to rise in popularity all over the world, and with it, the biggest and most popular MMA sporting body – the Ultimate Fighting Championship – UFC.
