4. There are a million ways to win…
In the UFC’s heyday, fighters used to know only one or two styles, severely limiting their overall martial arts skill set.
However, today’s athletes of the Octagon are expected to be well versed in all disciplines, from striking arts like boxing and Muay Thai to grappling arts such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Greco-Roman wrestling, making the sport a true mix of the arts.
The continued focus on cross training in multiple styles has opened up fighters to a whole array of ways to finish an opponent. Whether it’s a brutal spinning hook kick KO or a bone-breaking submission hold, there are a million ways to win a fight.
