  • Mixed Martial Arts By: Hamad Darwish
  • What is Mixed Martial Arts? MMA is a full contact sport that lets you use many different fighting styles in competition It allows you to perform a variety of grappling and striking attacks both standing and on the ground
  • 648 B.C. In 648 B.C. Greeks started a sport called Pankration, (All Powers) which was the first form of fighting with rules. The only rules were no biting and no eye gouging. I consider these very insignificant considering that the matches would sometimes last hours and end with death, although you would knock your opponent out or make them submit . The sport became popular when it was introduced to the Olympic games.
  • The Historty of MMA MMA originated in 1993 with UFC (ultimate fighting championship) When MMA first started there were no set rules Weight classes did not exist and fighters did not have to follow any guidelines
  • Current Rules & Regulations MMA bouts consist of 3, five minute rounds (Championship bouts are 5, five minute rounds) RULES- *No eye gouging * No shots below the belt * No hair pulling * No knee strikes while on the ground * No head butting!
  • Weight Classes Lightweight - over 145 lbs. to 155 lbs Welterweight - over 155 lbs. to 170 lbs Middleweight - over 170 lbs. to 185 lbs Light Heavyweight - over 185 lbs. to 205 lbs Heavyweight - over 205 lbs. to 265 lbs
  • Fighting Styles Boxing- These fighters use great footwork and quick jabs for offense. Wrestling- These fighters attempt throws and takedowns and use strong grapples to win. Jiu-Jitsu- These fighters do well off their back and perform strong submissions. Freestyle- These fighters did not start with any specific fighting style but base how they perform on their opponent.
  • Muay Thai Muay Thai is a style that started in Thailand and grew across south east Asia. Muay Thai is a combination of boxing and grappling knees and kicks. In Thailand its the most popular sport and is similar to boxing but is much more reliant on kicks and grappling. Unlike boxing which focuses on two contact points Muay Thai focuses on eight. some unlike boxing are knees, shins elbows and others.
  • Boxing Modern Boxing has been around for hundreds of years but has changed recently to focus on punches only. There are two points of focus in boxing different from any other martial arts sports. The two points are the head and the abdomen. Boxing matches can last up to ten three minute rounds and end when the opponent is unable to get up after 10 seconds .
  • Judo Judo is a style that started in Japan, and means "gentle way" which is far from what this sport is. In Judo the object is to throw your opponent to ground and make them submit. The focus is joint locks and using momentum to throw them in the air. This style led to the creation of all other similar sports like Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai.
  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Although Jiu Jitsu started in Japan Brazil martial arts schools quickly created their own version which is now widely popular in the UFC. The idea behind it is that a smaller weaker opponent can still win against a stronger opponent by using grappling and choke hold submissions.
  • The UFC The Ultimate Fighting Championship is by far the most popular and completive MMA league. Unlike other leagues the UFC has a stockpile of the most talented fighters from all around the world. In the UFC competitors mix up every kind of fighting style from every country. Any style fighter can fight any other style fighter in their weight division. Weight divisions run from Light Weight 146 to 155 up to Heavy Weights 206 to 265. With people fighting from Brazil to Japan theres never a dull moment.
  • The Rules In the UFC there are several different ways to win inspired from every league. A knock out is when your opponent cannot stand after 10 seconds, which came from boxing, TKO, or technical Knock out when the referee calls a stop to the fight and also by submission, coming from Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu.
  • Judges Decision * Judges use the 10-Point system. *10 points must be awarded to the winner of the round and nine points or less must be awarded to the loser. Evaluation depending on effective striking, effective grappling, control of the fighting area and effective aggressiveness and defense.
