* An episode of ''NewsRadio'' had Joe Garelli, played by Creator/JoeRogan, as a UFC combatant, which is particularly [[TheDanza Danza]]-ish due to Rogan's job as color commentator for the UFC. An exciting new style of combat is discovered in this episode: Tickle-style.

** Matt Lindland took the term literally by not bathing for days before a fight so that he would nauseate his opponents in grappling exchanges with his body odor. After Lindland retired, UFC referee John [=McCarthy=](who had helped draft the Unified Rules) lobbied for a codicil which states that commissions can force a fighter to shower before a fight if their body odor is deemed excessive.

** Current flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has been criticized for this in recent years. Fans say they admire his style for it technical mastery but it not fun exactly to watch a guy completely destroy opponents who are clearly no match for him (there's also the complaint that flyweights can't finish fights even though he's finished most of his fights since winning the title.)

Though similar sports have existed at certain points throughout history, most notably in the Greek Olympic sport Pankration, modern mixed martial arts began with the creation of the Ultimate Fighting Championship by Rorion Gracie and Art Davie in 1993. The event was billed as a no-holds-barred tournament straight out of ''Film/{{Bloodsport}}'' to determine which martial art style was "the best." Could Kung Fu beat Karate? Could boxing beat wrestling? These questions would be answered inside a chain-link enclosed "Octagon". Behind the scenes, however, the event was masterminded by the Gracies, a Brazilian clan of martial artists who had developed a style of submission grappling called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) that they believed could defeat any style. The event was intended to showcase the effectiveness of BJJ.
