As the name Mixed Martial Arts suggests, this is a fighting discipline which incorporates many different fighting arts. Although at the beginning most fighters came from one discipline and tended to specialize purely in that technique, over the years most fighters realized that they would have to get well versed in the other arts too if they were to have any chance of being successful, especially since, in the beginning, grapplers tended to win most of the competitions. Nowadays, every fighter can compete in any fashion, but every fighter still has one (or maybe two) disciplines which they are far stronger in than others.
