Post MMA Roots

After covering all that I did last week and the recent posts about the linear UFC titles I thought I'd cover the roots of MMA which some of you are familiar with but others are not. Here they are in no particular order:

Pankration-The first type of MMA was practiced in the ancient Greek Olympics and was a blend of wrestling and boxing but also included submissions.

Early Pro Wrestling-Believe it or not, modern pro wrestling and MMA have the same root sport. Unfortunately legit pro wrestling de-evolved into modern prowrestling.

Vale Tudo-We know this as the root of the original UFC, developed from the Gracies as part of their BJJ.
