Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) can be traced back to ancient Greece as the sport known as Pankration – Greek for "All Powers." It was a competitive event where fighters utilized striking, clinch, and grappling techniques to defeat their opponents; it was also used in battle. Conquests throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Europe helped to cultivate the many methods that are still used today. Over time, other techniques were adopted, eventually evolving into the sport you see today.
