Know about the most dangerous game which does not pose even the slightest danger to the player

Dangerous Game: This game is so dangerous that even WWE's Undertaker is left wondering for two hours. The name is MMA…this sport is one of the most dangerous places in the world. Why this game is called so dangerous will be understood only when you know about it. People are talking about wrestling. Someone is talking about boxing but do you know which is the most dangerous sport in the world?

The sport of Mixed Martial Arts, known as MMA, is gaining popularity across the world today. MMA is a sport that combines all types of fighting styles. And this dangerous game is played between two fighters. Many controversies have arisen due to this dangerous game. But, despite such a big controversy, this game is the third most popular game in the world today. However, there are many reasons why this game is popular. Today we are going to tell you some of those reasons.

Ultimate Fighting Championship –
MMA started in 1990. When, Ultimate Fighting Championship started in America. In which the world's best fighters were invited to fight in an octagon i.e. a ring with eight corners. The first UFC Fight Night was held on November 12, 1993. Rorion Gracie, Art Davey and Robert Mavroitz introduced this championship. In which people used to pay money to see the best fighters in the world.

Decline in boxing brand-
Another important reason for the popularity of MMA was that boxing was in decline. Boxing was the biggest sport in the world for three decades from 1980 to 2000. Matches between heavyweight boxers attracted spectators. At the same time, sponsorship was also more on boxing matches. Boxing became popular due to many boxing matches like Mike Tyson vs Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis vs Vitali. However, after the retirement of the great boxers, good boxers became fewer and fewer and boxing promoters began to value money more than boxing itself. Due to which, in many matches, good boxers were earning more money by performing poorly. The result was that the impression of boxing started fading from people's minds.

Change in fight rules –
Around the same time that the UFC started. There were no rules of any kind. There was no time limit and it was a one night tournament. Due to which the fighters used to get tired and could not perform at their best. After this the rules changed in the 2000s. In the UFC, round-wise fights began, similar to boxing, and the rules were implemented for fighters to defeat their opponent by knockout or submission in 3 rounds of 5 minutes each. Due to which the MMA fight became more interesting. After this, people started coming to UFC Fight Nights to watch MMA fights.

Conor McGregor-
It is said that no player is bigger than the game. But, in 2017, a fighter named Conor McGregor proved this wrong to a great extent. McGregor is very talkative and keeps provoking his opponents with his words. Because of which he is more famous among the people. Then, in 2017, Conor McGregor challenged star boxer Floyd Mayweather to a boxing match. Although boxer Floyd won in that match. But after that match, many boxing fans have become fans of MMA. So there are many reasons behind the growth of MMA. But it is for these reasons that MMA is the third most popular sport in the world today.
