Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Schedule

Mixed Martial Arts has been around for a long time, but it is growing in popularity now to the point where it is entering mainstream culture in the United States. With a number of leagues popping up and growing into full-on juggernauts, the sport of Mixed Martial Arts has never been more popular. New MMA fans are born all the time, as the Pay Per View events see a lot of viewers. But people truly fall in love with the sport when they see it live for the first time, when they get an up close and personal look at these fighters and the effort and skill it requires to win a bout. There are some fantastic events coming up in the near future, and you can catch any one of them in person.

August 16th will see HFE Live Cage Fighting come to the Sand Bethlehem Center in Bethlehem, PA, and plenty of MMA fans will surely be on hand for that. Later in the month Fight Lab 39 will hit the Harrahs Cherokee Resort Event Center in Cherokee, NC, and it should be a fantastic event to witness in person. In September Bellator MMA will head to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, and MMA fans are sure to flock to that venue to be a part of the action. Take a gander at the full schedule of MMA events to see which you'd most like to attend.


Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) History

In the early 1900's several organized MMA tournaments began popping up in parts of Europe and the Pacific Rim. A cult following slowly began to emerge in the United States and by the time the Gracie family brought the Brazilian vale tudo form of mixed martial arts to the United States to form UFC, there was already an existing market ready to flock to MMA events. Vale tudo proved to be a little bit too dangerous and rules were soon implemented to help form the kind of MMA that most spectators are used to today. After UFC I, commentator Howard Rosenberg first used the term "mixed martial arts" in his review of the fights. The term gained traction as the website newfullcontact.com published Rosenberg's review and continued using the term as it became one of the earliest promoters and reviewers of the sport. These days MMA events are sold as pay-per-view events on television for those not fortunate enough to attend the contests in person and have sales rivaling big time boxing fights and wrestling exhibitions.


Fan Experience

For centuries lovers of sport have been drawn to arenas and coliseums to see two incredible athletes face off against one another, battling for supremacy using only their skills, strength, and cunning. Whether it is boxing, wrestling, or mixed martial arts, there is just something primal in human nature that longs to see two top quality competitors battle it out against one another just to prove who the superior fighter is. MMA has taken over in the public consciousness when it comes to fighting and as thrilling as it is to watch these contests on television, it is even better to watch in person. The arena goes dark as each competitor enters the arena surrounded by trainers and hangers-on as their chosen entrance song blares over the sound system. Fans loudly cheer for their favorite fighter as he warms up and the two competitors meet briefly before the start of the fight. Once the bell rings there is a sense of nervous tension in the air as the two gladiators collide and sweat and blood pours out into the air and on the mat. Whether you are a fighter yourself and are able to admire the technical skills of the athletes or are merely an enthralled spectator who can't turn your eyes away from the animalistic clash of two world class athletes you are sure to have a thrilling time at one of these fights.


Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Trivia

What is the earliest form of sport that Mixed Martial Arts can be traced back to?

The answer is Pankration, which was an Olympic combat sport that dates back to the Greek era. There is something about one-on-one combat that people love to see in person, and it has been that way for a long time. MMA is now one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States with a wide fan base that spans the entire country.
