MMA & UFC news & events
The UFC got off to a slow start, founded in 1993, it attracted lots of controversy with ex-presidential candidate Johan McCain calling for it to be banned throughout the USA. The championship eventually shot to fame in 2005 due to the Ultimate Fighter TV series which saw fighters pitted against each other for the chance to win a UFC contract. Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a style that combines all the different techniques of all fighting sports, including boxing and Ju Jitsu. Ultimate Fighting Championship deals specifically with MMA and organises events all over the world for both men and women. There are currently nine different weight classes: Strawweight, Flyweight Bantamweight, Featherweight, Lightweight, Welterweight, Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight.
