Not that long ago, MMA fans were relegated to watching VHS copies of the UFC and reading about other “fringe” aspects of the sport, such as submission grappling, in Black Belt magazine.
What a difference 20 or so years and the Internet make.
Now, we have the UFC on Fox, UFC Fight Pass, Bellator on Spike TV and so on. Yet for all the exposure the sport is receiving, there is still some programming that fans of the sport may be missing out on.
Some of this of course will be far from new to fans of the combative sports as a whole, but this list is meant to be a fully rounded as possible. What you take from it is wholly up to you, which is how it should be.
These events and programming represent some of the core disciplines of the sport of MMA. These singular sports can be enjoyed by themselves while promoting the sport of MMA as a composite whole.
