Acronym for Mixed Martial Arts. For Example, learning Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu (brazilian or not) is a good combination. Muay Thai is good for fighting on your feet, while in Jiu-Jitsu it is perferable to fight on the floor. You can combine as many as you like and adapt them to your personal fighting style.

Probably the most overated sport ever. Consists of two tattooed and brainless men/women fighting in an octagon/ring/mat with no regard for human life. Humans weren't made to kick eachother's ass.
MMA FAN: Hey want to watch some UFC?
Me: Nah, I'd rather watch fake wrestling. I don't know what's so great about UFC. If I want to see a fight, I can just go to the flagpole after school.

Incontrovertible evidence of the dumbing down of America. This "Sport" represents the worst, most base aspects of humanity. Two bald, tattoo laden, muscle bound sub-humans enter a ring (or octagon, which, ironically enough, most MMA fans are incapable of defining), and commence what any level headed on-looker would believe is a strange combination of gay sex and struggling over the world's last twinkie.

The fans of this sport have about as much civility as a rabid dog with a missing leg, compliments of a wood chipper. If anyone dares to question its legitimacy, be prepared for lots of "what bitch!" or "get in the ring fucker!" or "I beg your pardon sir, but I have no other method by which to compensate for the fact that my 3rd grade teacher molested me. I hear by challenge you to an MMA duel."

You need only look at definition #7 for a prime example of this.

Towards the end of the Roman Empire, the Roman Senate instituted a policy they called "Bread and Circuses". They knew their government was falling apart, so they decided to keep people fat, dumb, and happy by making entertainment available to the masses. MMA defines this. It is the escape of every unskilled, uneducated slob to live vicariously through each fighter, living out every violent fantasy they've ever had stored away.

All in all, it's a bunch of testosterone laden douchebaggery, throw in some self-masturbatory chest beating, and you have right there, ladies and gentlemen, mixed martial arts.
Watching MMA will turn you into a verified de-de-de.
