MMA is where all of our sports come together. You've seen it on UFC, now is your chance to try it out for yourself.
In the past 18 years, mixed martial arts (MMA) has left the underground world and has become comfortably fixed in the mainstream. One of the largest and fastest growing organisers of MMA is UFC, founded in 1993. Fighters battle it out in the cage with minimal protection. During the matches, MMA fighters only wear thin gloves, and are barefoot. Fighters are allowed to punch, kick, grab or do anything else to win the match. This stays true to the sports Brazilian roots of "Vale Tudo" fighting, which translates as "anything goes".
The few rules that the sport does have is similar to boxing and wrestling. Fighters can win a MMA match by three ways, KO, Submission of judges decision.
