What is MMA?

For those who are ignorant, mixed martial arts may appear to be a barbaric activity, pitting two thugs in a cage together with the sole purpose of destroying the other.

For those who are aware, mixed martial arts may appear to be an exciting sport, squaring off two athletes in a cage with the sole purpose of utilizing a variety of martial techniques to defeat the other.

For those who are truly aware, mixed martial arts is the epitome of competition, characterized by dedication, discipline, and desire. A life time of dedication to the training of technique, the body, and the mind. All for the chance to stand a winner - a champion

This is MMA.
