My apologies. It's not as well known in the US. It's harder to come by, here.

There is no season in MMA. There are 3 main MMA leagues: UFC, Bellator, & Invicta (an all-women's league).

Fights are broken down by weight classes where the fighters can weigh no more than 1 lb over the weight limit. For the men, the weight classes are 125 lbs, 135 lbs, 145 lbs, 155, lbs, 170 lbs, 185 lbs, 205 lbs & (I think) 270 lbs. UFC has only 2 weight classes for the women: 115 lbs & 135 lbs. Invicta has weight classes from 105 lbs to (I believe) 155.

For non title fights, there are 3 5 minute rounds. Title fights (or main event fights) are 5 five minute rounds. 4 ounce fingerless gloves are worn. No pads on the feet or shins.

Kicks, punches, knees & elbows are allowed. A fighter can win by either decision, submission, or knock out.

Some current bigger name fighters are Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Holly Holm, Nate Diaz, Demetrius Johnson, & Jose Aldo.

I hope that helps a bit.


Thanks much Iceman. I so want to make a Top Gun joke now. But I am not quick enough at the moment for a good one.

I will definitely look in to this.

There is also the ¨ONE¨league based in Singapore, I would love to see all the big leagues pit thier top guys into a true ¨World¨ championship. Very unlikely to ever happen tho....
