Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a style of competition in which fighters are allowed to use both striking and grappling styles to win by knockout (KO), submission (tapout), technical knockout/referee stoppage (TKO), or judges’ decision. The popularity of MMA events like the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Bellator, and the World Series of Fighting mean there are millions of fans — and plenty of people eager to train.
