MMA Mixed Martial Arts

History of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) dates back to the Olympics of ancient Greece. Mixed Martial Arts fights originated as hand-to-hand combat performed as a sport called pankration, from the Greek words pan and kratos, meaning “all powers.” The Greek competitors had only two rules: no biting and no eye gouging.
