2. What sport is MMA?

Mixed martial arts

Mixed martial arts, or MMA, is a sport in which two combatants fight each other using a variety of punching, kicking, and grappling moves. While various forms of MMA have been around for decades, the term was first coined in 1993, by a TV critic reviewing the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

The UFC went on to become the world's premier MMA league. It currently hosts hundreds of MMA events each year. So, when people are discussing MMA, they're likely referring to events being run and promoted by the UFC. (On rare occasions, people may instead be referring to other MMA events or "learn MMA" classes.)
