If you think MMA is just a brutal sport, you’re missing out. Yes, it’s violent and yes, there’s some blood involved. But MMA is also a lot safer than other combat sports like boxing because we wear protective equipment, such as gloves and headgear when fighting. We also have time limits on each round so that fighters don’t overexert themselves before the final bell rings.
Many people see MMA as brutal, but it is safer than boxing
You may be thinking, “That’s not true! Boxing is the most dangerous sport in the world.” But it isn’t.
First of all, MMA fighters are trained to protect themselves and their opponents. In boxing, you don’t have to worry about hitting your opponent while they’re down—but with an MMA fighter, it’s different. If we’re on top of each other trying to get a good hold on each other, then we’re also protecting ourselves from being hit hard by our opponent at the same time as we’re trying to hit them hard ourselves!
Secondly, there is more training that goes into MMA than there does for boxing—and this extra training means greater awareness among fighters when they enter the ring or cage (that’s where fights take place). They know how much force will be needed for them not just to defend themselves but also to defend their opponent from damage caused by another fighter’s blows during competition periods such as rounds within matches against one another (think about football players having padded helmets so they don’t get concussions!).
Muay Thai incorporates some elements of kickboxing and karate
Muay Thai is a martial art originating from Thailand, and it’s one of the most popular combat sports in the world. It combines elements of kickboxing and karate, which makes for an exciting sport to watch! Well-trained fighters will demonstrate excellent balance and flexibility, as well as skillful use of their hands and feet.
Muay Thai fighters are known for wearing short shorts while they fight—and sometimes those shorts are tight enough to show off their muscles! Muay Thai is often referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs” since it uses punches (hands), kicks (feet), elbows (arms) knees (legs).
Bouts usually last three rounds, unlike in boxing where they go on for 12 rounds
If you’re looking for a sport that will keep you on the edge of your seat, look no further than mixed martial arts (MMA). One of the most popular combat sports in the world, MMA has been around since 1993 and can be watched on TV or streamed online. It’s also gaining popularity among children thanks to its combination of fighting and sportsmanship—it teaches kids how to defend themselves while giving them an outlet through which they can express their emotions.
The bouts are separated into three rounds with each round lasting anywhere from five minutes to seven minutes depending on whether they are held inside or outside. Each round is separated by a one-minute break, during which fighters rest and regain their energy before entering back into battle again at the beginning of each new session. During this period trainers may treat any injuries sustained during combat so that participants are ready for action when it resumes next time around!

MMA competition has been around since first being introduced as NHB (no holds barred) circa (1988–1992), then eventually grew into what we now refer to as MMA or mixed martial arts by 1993 when it was legalized by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board after initially being banned due to its brutality. Today many different styles comprise MMA including Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Judo, Wrestling, etc…
MMA is a very interesting sport to watch and participate in. It combines many different martial arts such as Muay Thai, karate, boxing, and jiu-jitsu.
