The sport of MMA (mixed martial arts) has come a long way since it’s 1990’s inception, striving to become part of the mainstream amongst a shark pool of more established traditions. In the hunt of creating a more polished and branded product, the UFC is the clear leader in the current market. Oddly enough, the Zuffa owned banner has also been home to some of the most controversial happenings in the sport, as have many smaller and lesser known promotions.
Unfortunately for MMA, these happenings often do little more than smear the image of the sport, as entertainment and madness often merge in to one, some of the more sensational and controversial moments in MMA history have come outside the ring/cage/octagon. Some have occurred inside the ring of combat but after the final bell, so we’ve included those pre/post fight incidents too as they haven’t officially been during the fights. It’s not always the fighters to blame either, sometimes the ugly violence at MMA events worldwide is caused by the crowds in attendance.
This list is not for the faint hearted, as things get pretty dark in the top five.
