Acronym for Mixed Martial Arts, which is a sport that combines all the martial arts you can think of, under the same rules. The sport isn't mainstream (yet), and has had trouble from some politicians who are trying to ban the sport, when there has not been a single death in a sanction MMA event, where as boxing has 6 deaths a year in sanctioned events. The main organistion in America is the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). In Japan it is Pride FC. The main obvious difference is that UFC fighters fight in a cage, Pride is in a ring. There are several new upcoming organistions such as Strikeforce and the WFA.
