Welcome to my blog everyone where you will find my thoughts as well as updated news on everything related to mixed martial arts (MMA).
For those of you who don’t know, MMA began to rise with the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) in 1993 where fighters used a variety of techniques on their opponents. It all started with very few rules and no weight class. More rules were added toward the late 90’s in order to keep the sport safer, yet fun at the same time. Anyway, I am not going to go through the history of the sport because this isn’t an MMA history class.
This sport has grown tremendously in the last few years and the fights are just getting better and better everytime. More and more skillful fighters are demonstrating their abilities on television. It’s like I can’t wait for the next fights as there is always something good going on.
I wasn’t much of a fan before because I didn’t really understand the whole technique behind judo, brazilian jiu jitsu, muay thai and so many other techniques. Many people don’t understand the strategy needed when facing an opponent on the ground or standing up. When these fighters are on the ground, you have to actually observe the strategy they use to either submit or KNOCK their opponent’s ass OUT. There’s skills behind all of this people!
Sooooo, I am sure you want to know what else is going on out there in the world of fighting so make sure to come through and check out the latest in MMA.
