Mixed Martial Arts is a term generally used to describe the sport featured in The Ultimate Fighting Championship as well as other organizations whereby participants utilize striking and grappling techniques to win a fight. The term Mixed Martial Arts or MMA was first coined by UFC color commentator Jeff Blatnik in response to the rapid change in martial arts brought about by competitors in the UFC. Fighters were forced to abandon their narrow focused training and adopt an approach that included various forms of martial arts. Wrestlers began to learn boxing and Muay Thai, Karate fighters started learning Brazilian Jiujitsu and Jiujitsu players trained in striking techniques. Todays fighters are much more well rounded than those that fought in the infancy of MMA.
