Combat sports, also known as martial arts or fighting sports, refer to organized forms of competitive physical activity that involve attacking and defending oneself from an opponent. Combat sports are found all over the world in a variety of forms, with some traditional examples including boxing, judo, kickboxing, karate and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. More modern styles such as mixed martial arts (MMA) are also becoming increasingly popular.
UFC is the world's premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, hosting fight events worldwide. It showcases some of the most talented and skilled competitors on the planet today. UFC is widely credited for bringing MMA into the mainstream in the early 2000s, which has led to MMA becoming one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.
