Unlimited Fighting Championship is a sport organization which is in charge of Mixed Martial Arts with its headquarters in Las Vegas. UFC history started with a single tournament in Denver, 1993. The purpose of the first tournament was to identify the most effective fighting arts. In 2001, owners of US casino chain received a license for this kind of sport and started active commercial campaign to promote the sport in the United States.
In 2007, the UFC bought Pride Fighting Championships, the Japanese fighting organization with mixed rules and became the world’s leading promoter in this sport. Nowadays, most of the world’s famous fighters perform under UFC and fights are being broadcasted in more than one hundred countries. Current basis of UFC fight rules was originally approved by sports management of New Jersey State. De facto, these rules are standard for MMA fighters who do not belong to UFC.
Length of UFC round is five minutes. The number of rounds in one fight is negotiated individually. There are usually 5 rounds in the fight for the championship belt and three rounds for simple fights. A brake between rounds is one minute. UFC has five weight categories, from light (66-70 kilograms) to heavy (93-120 kilograms). One of peculiarities of UFC fights is a cage or “The octagon”, which is installed at a height of 1.2 meters above floor level and has a diameter of 9.75 meters.
UFC rules prohibit head-butting, groin attacks, hair pulling, biting, eye-gouging, fish-hooking, throwing an opponent out of the cage etc. and other unsportsmanship behavior.
The sport organization has no plans to slow down expansion of the international market. Thus, 23 out of 45 planned tournaments in 2015 will be held out of the USA.
