Mixed martial arts or MMA is a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques. Fighters make use of the techniques from a mixture of martial arts traditions and non-traditions. Also are designed several rules that allow the use of striking and grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground.
With the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, modern mixed martial arts competition emerged in American popular culture in 1993. These events were initially based on finding the most effective martial arts for real unarmed combat situations. Modern Martial Arts featured competitors of various arts pitting against one another with minimal rules for safety.
The following decade broke the doors down for Mixed Martial Arts especially when MMA promoters adopted many additional rules which primarily brought into focus safety for competitors.
Several significant steps were taken to promote mainstream acceptance of the sport. Following these changes, Mixed Martial Arts events were organized at major spots and televised.
The sport saw increased popularity with pay per view reach rivaling boxing and professional wrestling. Releasing the popularity and growth of Mixed Martial Arts over the years, CBS Primetime made a significant deal to air Elite Xtreme Combat.
