Basically the main idea is a hard but fair challenge man against man. In an octagon (“cage”) two fighters are facing each other with the only goal to defeat the opponent.
Because of the thin fingerless leather gloves, with which the fighters are capable to make good use of their grips and moves are spectacular fights programmed.
Fascination MMA - Mixed Martial Arts
There are thousands of fighting styles and self defence forms (judo, karate, boxing, Kung Fu just to name a few) which everyone thinks about itself to be the best.
At usual events there are always the fighters challenging each other in the same fighting style, for example at a box fight a boxer against a boxer or at a wrestling match a wrestler against a wrestler.
Mixed Martial Arts gives every athlete the possibility to have a fair measuring of their skills without being restricted to one fighting style.
