In addition to intensive training, this sport also requires a lot of discipline, tactics and resilience. Ingredients that not everyone owns, but can train.
MMA is on the rise all over the world. The fact that the martial art is becoming more and more popular can be seen in the many unions that are emerging worldwide, the most famous of which is the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). or have done well. Allistair Overeem, Melvin Manhoef, Stefan Struve and of course Gegard Mousasi are real toppers.
