According to statistics from the end of last decade, UFC has brought in 250 million USD / year, accounting for 90% of revenue from martial arts sport. Much of its revenue comes from monthly subscriptions to watch matches via television. Releasing DVDs, selling T-shirts or watching games on the Internet also brought in significant money.
Currently, UFC is maintaining agreements with broadcasters operating on a global scale. In the United States, UFC signs an agreement with Fox to serve domestic needs while creating the UFC Fight Pass to keep pace with the growing digital trend.

According to statistics from 2007, the revenue from advertising after each fiscal year of UFC increased an average of 14.6%.
However, UFC is not the only company that knows how to make money from MMA. Bellator FC, a company founded in 2008 based in Santa Monica, California, is also emerging as a formidable name. Outside the US borders, MMA is also becoming a popular sport around the world. In Asia, ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) quickly recognized the trend and became a big name in the regional MMA village.
ONE FC was born in 2011 in Singapore and is the first MMA tournament in the world with a category for female gladiators. Events take place in Singapore and many famous cities in the region such as Jakarta, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Taipei, Phnom Penh, Beijing, Guangzhou, Yangon, Hefei, Macau and Bangkok.

There was much talk around the money the MMA gladiators received. Even some articles claim that those who pursue this subject just because of passion, not because of money. However, the wage security policy among MMA circles makes it difficult for outsiders to know the truth behind this billion-dollar industry.
Originating in the United States, MMA attracted a lot of American attention before spreading around the world and creating a multi-billion dollar industry.
Mixed Martial Arts is a comprehensive fighting game that allows gladiators to use every attack for the sole purpose of defeating the opponent. The appeal of MMA makes it a money-making industry in the US and is increasingly proving attractive around the world.

Acquired by the Fertita brothers for $ 2 million in 2001, UFC has achieved unimaginable success. In 2016, the Fertita brothers sold it for $ 4 billion, making it the biggest deal in sports history.
At $ 4 billion, the UFC deal is twice as big as the previous most expensive record in sports. It is even bigger than the value of a series of other famous clubs such as Cowboys, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, New York Yankees or Manchester United. The record selling price says a lot about UFC’s appeal.

Before each Super Bowl match, 12,000 seats in the game field were sold out for an average of 340 USD for each ticket. In addition to those who come to the yard, the company also sells to a few million fans the right to watch the game via television, the Internet for more than 40 USD. For those who want to see high definition images, the amount will be more than 50 USD. On average, each peak game will bring in tens of millions of dollars.

McGregor did not forget to send his words of love to his mother, Mrs. Magaret McGregor. This is the third time the Irish MMA star has announced his retirement. The last time McGregor wanted to give up the octagon cage was after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov. The Russian boxer defended the belt against Conor by winning the neck break in the fourth quarter.
McGregor is remembered not only for his talent on the stage but also for his classic “mouth-to-mouth” performances, along with the crowd-pull skills that helped MMA in general and the UFC company to grow dramatically in terms of fans. Of course, the MMA community has been standing idly by the announcement of McGregor’s latest, because recently, a series of important fighters all intend to leave UFC.
McGregor’s career was tied to MMA, but the match that rose to the superstar in the sports industry was a duel with Mayweather at boxing station in August 2017. McGregor lost to Mayweather but still earned $ 100 million in a performance-heavy match.

If you just talk about superficiality, anyone can say that learning Boxing to fight, Taekwondo and Muay Thai to hit the legs, but for coaches and boxers, they consider supporting martial arts in MMA from a perspective.
Boxing – the number one platform of MMA
Today, almost 100% of professional MMA boxers must practice through Boxing. This martial art is limited to weapons in the hands, but it has the ability to coordinate flexibly with all different forms. This has made Boxing become the almost absolute platform of professional MMA.
Stance: The stance of Boxing is also becoming the standard stance for modern martial arts competition. With just the standard stance of Boxing, a boxer can just expand a little bit or shrink a little bit, it is possible to create a premise for different wrestling or kick techniques. Even the boxing tactic is the one that is most applied and modified for every martial art.
Hands – a natural weapon of human instincts: Throughout the evolution of mankind, the hands have become the most versatile and versatile parts of the body. All human activities revolve around the movement of the hands.
Modern boxing is aimed at perfecting the fighting ability of the hands. In martial arts, every martial art must more or less have to have hand techniques.

Karate Kyokushin – Toughness and alertness in each combo sequence
In the course of Karate’s development, the Kyokushin sect turned into a different, more brutal and tougher branch. Kyokushin fighters often fight at close range and almost change their moves continuously. It is this style of hard-working and pressure-based that I forged a class of martial artists extremely alert in the rain. Kyokushin’s students were not only physically and mentally stubborn, they were practically full butchers.
However, Kyokushin’s bloody stubbornness is not the kind of recklessness, Kyokushin fighters are forced to keep awake in the state of receiving a series of bare-handed punches into the chest but still have to watch out for those attacks. onto the leg unexpectedly from the opponent. For the attacker, the Kyokushin fighters must calculate the change and return the decisive blow right in the moment when they enter the heated fight.
Although it is also in the name of mixed martial arts, MMA competitions around the world do not always use the same set of rules.
After more than 25 years of development, MMA has become a popular form of competition in the world. However, as with other competitive disciplines, each MMA tournament undergoes a period of change and use of different rules.
Unified Mixed Martial Rules used by UFC

ONE Championship, PRIDE Fighting Championship and soccer-kick
As UFC counterparts in Asia, PRIDE FC and ONE Championship also use different laws to their North American competitors. Most especially, the audience still remembers the equally competitive law of PRIDE FC.
When UFC dropped the blow to the opponent’s head while lying down, PRIDE FC in Japan continued to maintain these techniques. The audience is not uncommon images of soccer kicks or stomps kicks on the opponent’s head while lying down. It is fierce, but PRIDE FC forbids fighters to use elbow techniques, a weapon when effective on the stage.
