Mixed martial arts is a very different sport than it was during the 1990’s, in many ways. Although it encompasses all the physical aspects of the most practical martial arts on the planet, there’s a clear difference between the respect shown in traditional styles, both inside and outside the ring or octagon. This isn’t true for every fighter, but there are a select few that really take the cake, often causing massive controversy in the media with their actions.
