One of the many reasons the sport of mixed martial arts is so exciting is because it is the sport that most resembles street fighting. That’s why promotions like UFC and Bellator have been as successful as they’ve been. Fighters are not just stuck to one discipline. Whether it is punching, scuffling, kicking, wrestling, or submissions, all of it is allowed in both MMA and street fighting. As a result, it is no surprise that some of the biggest names in the sport of MMA have a history of fighting outside the cage or ring.
