UFC is as brutal, bloody and hardcore as you can get while still staying legal. It makes boxing look like kids pulling each other’s hair. The UFC or Ultimate Fighting Championship held its first event back in 1993, in Denver, Colorado. Back then nobody knew who Joe Rogan was, but we’ll leave that discussion for another day. The purpose of the UFC was to pit people with different martial arts background against each other to find the best one. Back in the day, there were just a couple of rules i.e. no nut shots, pulling hair, etc. However, the UFC began to evolve as fighters started adopting numerous techniques so, for instance, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist would also start boxing and learn Muay Thai making them as effective standing up as they are on the ground. So, what you have today are fighters that use a combo of martial arts techniques, hence the name ‘Mixed Martial Arts’.
