What is MMA and Where did it come from?

MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts and is also referred to as a cage fight.  It allows striking and grappling. The first regulated MMA league was organized in the United States and was also known as the Battle of super fighters.  In 1993 a rule was passed in Pennsylvania Senate prohibiting the sport.

However, later Ultimate Fight Championship MMA promotion company was formed. The events under the company had almost no rules. And this made this sport even more deadly and full of rage. But still International Mixed Martial Arts Federation is the highest body that governs it.

MMA in India

MMA in India is promoted by the Super Fight League. The organization is co-owned by British-Asian businessman Bill Dosanjh and British-Pakistani boxing champion. Bill Dosanjh net worth can be assumed from the fact that the businessman invested 200cr in the tournament and plans to invest 100cr more in the coming days. However, the firm was established by Sanjay Dutt and Raj Kundra. The organization has been active for over 8 years now. The organization has telecasted over 67 live events and has over 50 million views.

This literally started the MMA career in India, followed by many full-fledged MMA championships.

India has its own Super Fight League Challenge similar to the Ultimate Fighter where 8 male and 8 female fighters are kept in one house to complete a variety of tasks and be a winner.  Every alternate episode has 2 fights where the losing fighters have to leave the house and the winners proceed to the next round.

The show went for 50 days. The winner received a prize of 2 Million Indian Rupee and a 3-year contract worth 2.5 Million Indian Rupee with the promotion. The show had 8 teams the names are listed below:
