Mixed Martial Arts combines all fighting styles to mix into one. The four most popular styles that are in this sport are Boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling. This sport is full contact combat mixing stand-up striking and ground grappling techniques. The most popular organization that uses this sport is the Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC. Several ways to win a match through UFC rules are knockouts or KO (an opponent is unable to continue fighting from being hit by a legal strike), submission (the opponent taps on the person’s body or mat or verbally says it when caught in a grappling technique), technical knockout or TKO( a referee may stop the match if a fighter becomes dominant to the point where the opponent cannot intelligently defend himself, a fighter appears to be losing consciousness as he/she is being struck, or a fighter appears to have a significant injury such as a cut or a broken bone), or doctor stoppage/cut(the referee will call for a time out if a fighter’s ability to continue is in question as a result of apparent injuries, such as a large cut. The ring doctor will inspect the fighter and stop the match if the fighter is deemed unable to continue safely, rendering the opponent the winner. However, if the match is stopped as a result of an injury from illegal actions by the opponent, either a disqualification or no contest will be issued instead). This type of combat sport is popular throughout the world.
