Mixed Martial Arts?

Or for a more accurate summary..
Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques and skills, from a mixture of martial arts traditions and non-traditions, to be used in competitions. The rules allow the use of both striking as well as grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. Such competitions allow martial artists of different backgrounds to compete.
MMA has had a huge increase in popularity over the last few years partly because of the UFC and it’s reality show The Ultimate Fighter (Sometimes abbreviated TUF). However MMA does not equal UFC. While all UFC fights are MMA, not all MMA Fights are in the UFC. The UFC is the big dog, but there are other organizations out there, like Strikeforce, Bellator Fighting Championship and Dream.

MMA FAQ cribbed from previous OPs

I just want to see like a ninja guy fight a sumo wrestler. Oh oh! How about like a Kung Fu guy take on some old dude who does Tai Chi? (Fighting Styles)
Well, this could happen, I guess, but most likely it won’t. Firstly, MMA matches are separated into weight divisions

• Flyweight: under 126 lb (57 kg)
• Bantamweight: 126 to 135 lb (57 to 61 kg)
• Featherweight: 136 to 145 lb (62 to 66 kg)
• Lightweight: 146 to 155 lb (66 to 70 kg)
• Welterweight: 156 to 170 lb (71 to 77 kg)
• Middleweight: 171 to 185 lb (78 to 84 kg)
• Light Heavyweight: 186 to 205 lb (84 to 93 kg)
• Heavyweight: 206 to 265 lb (93 to 120 kg).
• Super Heavyweight: above 265 lb (120 kg).

That’s why you can’t have Brock Lesnar (current undisputed UFC Heavyweight Champion of the world) destroy UFC welterweight (and almost universally despised asshole) Josh Koscheck. Or even have a huge sumo dude against some old Tai Chi guy.

Next, while you can fight with any style you want, there are a number of styles that have been proven over the years to work really well. Here are some examples:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is something almost every single MMA fighter trains in to some extent (Except, perhaps, James Toney) it has been a dominate strategy ever since UFC 1 and has greatly increased in popularity as a martial art due to MMA
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Abbreviated BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century, which was itself developed from a number of schools (or Ryu) of Japanese jujutsu in the 19th century.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.


Muay Thai: The national sport of Thailand, Muay Thai is a very popular technique in MMA due to the fact it trains fighters to not only use their hands and feet, but also their elbows and knees which can create devastating strikes to their opponents.
Muay Thai is a hard martial art from Thailand. It is similar to other Indochinese styles of kickboxing, namely pradal serey from Cambodia, tomoi from Malaysia, lethwei from Myanmar and Muay Lao from Laos. Descended from muay boran, Muay Thai is Thailand's national sport
The word muay derives from the Sanskrit mavya and Thai comes from the word Tai. Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science Of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in sport-oriented martial arts. A practitioner of Muay Thai is known as a nak muay. Western practitioners are sometimes called nak muay farang meaning foreign boxer.

Wrestling (Freestyle and Greco-Roman) is another popular discipline for Mixed Martial Artists. The ability to take your opponent to the ground and while on the ground control him is incredibly powerful. While on the ground wrestling experts will either Ground and Pound (Abbreviated GnP, which simply means hitting their opponent while they are in a dominate position on the ground) their opponents, or attempt to make their opponent submit using any number of chokes and other submissions

However in the end you can fight however you want, if you want to Crain kick your way to MMA immortality, go for it. In the end, the only thing that matters is victory.

Wait what? Brazilian Jew Whatsu? More Ties? I don’t care about your fashion statements, I just want to see some sweet moves! You know like Hurricane kicks and Spinning Piledrivers! (MMA Moves)

Well not to worry, my eager friend, there are indeed some ‘sweet moves’ to be had in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. You know cool shit like:

Superman Punches:
685px-Flying-punch.jpg
A superman punch, cobra punch or diving punch is a technique used in Muay Thai, full contact karate and mixed martial arts fighting. The technique involves bringing the rear leg forward to feign a kick, then snapping the leg back while throwing a cross, resulting in greater power behind the punch

Roundhouse kicks:
Muay_Thai_High_kick.jpg
A roundhouse kick (also known as turning kick but often confused with the round kick) is a kick in which the attacker swings his leg around in a semicircular motion, striking with the front of the leg or foot.[1] This type of kick is utilized in many different martial arts and is popular in both non-contact and full-contact martial arts competitions. The kick has many variations based on stance, leg movement, striking surface, and the height of the kick.


Guillotine Chokes:
Guillotine_choke.jpg
The Guillotine choke is a chokehold in martial arts applied from in front of the opponent. The choke involves using the arms to encircle the opponent's neck in a fashion similar to a guillotine. The technique is either a type of tracheal compression restraint (wind choke) that prevents air flow to the lungs, or a blood choke depending on how it is applied. When executed from the ground, the person applying it will try to control the opponent by the hips, for instance using a closed guard. This is done to prevent the opponent from escaping the hold, and to be able to apply additional pressure by extending the hips.


Rear Naked Chokes:
Rear_naked_choke.gif
The Rear naked choke (RNC) is a chokehold in martial arts applied from an opponent's back. Depending on the context, the term may refer to one of two variations of the technique, either arm can be used to apply the choke in both cases. The term rear naked choke likely originated from the technique in Jujutsu and Judo known as the "Hadaka Jime", or "Naked Strangle." The word "naked" in this context suggests that, unlike other strangulation techniques found in Jujutsu/Judo, this hold does not require the use of a keikogi ("gi") or training uniform.
There are about a billion different ways to attack an opponent in MMA, this is just a small sampling, but not to worry. There are almost limitless ‘sweet moves’

Including this one, thanks facetious

Tiger Knee


And don't forget these (Thanks BubbaT)

Cro Cop's LHK (against the immovable object that is Mark Hunt's rock head)


Uberknee

Ryo Chonan's flying leg scissors heel hook


Toby Imada's inverted triangle choke



Randleplex


Mark Hunt's atomic butt drop
How about we just post a ton of links of incredibly awesome and sweet moves right here?


POWERBOMB!



Ok, now you’re talking my language! One of those moves had naked RIGHT IN THE TITLE. That’s awesome! These fights must be no holds barred right? You know like that awesome Hulk Hogan Movie… No Holds Barred (MMA Rules)

Ok slow down a minute, Mixed Martial Arts fights do have SOME rules to make sure this doesn’t become the Ball Punching Olympics (like it used to be back in the early days of the UFC). A Unified Set of rules has (kind of universally) been adopted.



Some organizations have different rules than others. Some you can’t use your elbows. Some you can perform a “Soccer Kick” (Kicking the head of a downed opponent) but the Unified Rules are as close as we have to the ‘rules’ of MMA.

Ok so now I know the basics I guess, you know with the Muay Jitsu and the Superman Kicks. Where can I get some additional info? (Outside Resources)

    Oh, I posted in the other thread while watching the repeat so I wasn't reading the thread for fear of spoilers, and therefore I didn't see that you'd started a new thread. I'll reiterate:

    Did anyone else think (DeMarques) Johnson was basically out on his feet for the entire second round after Amir landed that brutal series of knees and punches? The whole time I thought he looked like he could barely stand, and then he had that "slip" where he just seemed to semi-collapse for no reason.

    Poor Garcia, he probably heard all the shit about him being a sloppy fighter and winning decisions everyone else thought he lost.

    He trained hard. Worked on his timing and precision.

    Came out, won the first round and looked fantastic! No one was going to doubt his unanimous decision this time!

    Oh shit, why is Jung twisting my body arou-HURGHK

    Just saw the card. It was pretty good


    Jung/Garcia was great. It was fantastic to see Jung pull that submission out of nowhere when there were just a few seconds left. That must have really really hurt for Garcia to tap so fast near the end of the round.

    Amir/Johnson was also fun, though you could see that Johnson was there on 2 weeks notice as he gassed pretty quickly, and Amir quickly capitalized on that.

    Hardy/Rumble was dull. Hardy might get cut now, I guess? He does not seem to have an answer to wrestlers.


    Rogerio/Davis was okay. It was mostly Davis failing to take Nog down and then succeeding suddenly. It was fairly active on the ground though so it was not particularly dull.


    I missed all the facebook fights however. Were they any good?

    No word so far but rumour is he gets one more shot, one of the losses being to GSP and all that.

    I will always be a fan of Dan's win or lose but I am massively disappointed in him, all that talk and training about improving his Jits, training with Victor Estima, Bravo and Nelson and he can't submit AJ off his back even in the 3rd when AJ has been off for a year.

    He has peaked too, if he can't beat AJ now guys like Kos will run through him. Shame, as I like the guy.

    Hathaway I thought did better than some seem, having watched the fight again that was a clear 29-28 win for him and I think McKray having the LW champ in his corner / training him has brought his game on somewhat, it was closer than many thought but John did well imho, he almost took that foot home with him.

    John is only 23, if he can improve his jits and striking a little I think he could go far.

    He knocked Todd "Steroids" Duffee out of the UFC, so it wasn't a total loss.

    - Dana White talks Dan Hardy: "Not necessarily (with he be cut). We’ll have to wait and see. I f*ckin’ love that kid."

    To be fair, GSP, a former WEC WW champ and a strong wrestler 2 weight classes above you, in which you only go hurt in one...it's not the worst 3 fight losing streak ever, not like he is losing to scrubs.

    It depends on what level of grappling you're at, usually. Pretty much everything is legal in MMA, though. Besides the obvious of "no small joint manipulation".

    Sefo looked like a dead fish out of water. Can't believe how many people thought he would've won.

    Also, any one else tremendously impressed by Phil Davis? Sure, people are unimpressed by his performance, but this was only his ninth fight against Rogerio, who undoubtedly has been working his TDD. Plus, the same thing had happened to Jon Jones. He looked phenomenal against Stephen Bonnar, but then seemed a bit lack luster for a little awhile, and then he was suddenly the next biggest thing. I see Phil Davis's career taking the same approach, but faster.
