Mixed martial arts property growing across Europe and the UK; 22 partners on board worldwide.

Launched in 1993, Ultimate Fighting Championship is best described as mixed martial arts. Athletes compete under the unified rules of MMA, combining five Olympic sports – boxing, Greco-Roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling, Judo and Tae Kwon Do – with traditional martial arts including Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, karate and kung fu.

UFC bouts take place in a specially designed fenced ring called the Octagon, across seven weight divisions, each with a single UFC World Champion.
