Mixed Martial Arts is a combat sport that has been around for a long time, but the sport has not really got any mainstream recognition until last few years. The reason the sport was not shown on mainstream is because it was said to be too barbaric. It has been proven that these types of fighters take less damage than a boxer would because of the ground aspect of the sport. Boxers are constantly trading punches, but in mixed martial arts there are chances for wrestling, and takedowns. With this being said, there are times when there are some pretty horrific injuries.
