Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that brings into account many different fighting techniques and skills. MMA incorporates striking such as Muay Thai and submission grappling and ground fighting such as in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Of equal importance are fighting techniques from the clinch and takedowns and takedown defense with wrestling.
