It’s amazing to think that MMA was just a baby 10 years ago. MMA has moved from a little-known sport to a billion-dollar industry. The roots of this exploding sport is found in Brazil’s Vale Tudo and Japan’s Shoot-fighting. When the Ultimate Fighting Championships came on the scene in the early 90s, spectators got to witness fighters from different styles competing with no time-limits, no weight classes, and almost no rules.

Many successful MMA fighters started their fighting career in one fighting style and through training have successfully evolved into a more complete fighter through several disciplines. An example would be a former collegiate wrestler will cross-train in boxing and other martial arts to compete at the highest fighting levels. However, it doesn’t matter how good your skills are at wrestling, boxing or any other martial art if you are lacking cardiovascular endurance. Great fighters can become virtually defenseless if they run out of steam during a fight. Without proper oxygen to the lungs, it becomes difficult to simply hold your hands up. Cardio training is an important ingredient in any fighters training regimen.

I am talking about human physiology, which can be defined as the science of the functions of the human body and the chemical and physical processes involved. The better you understand how the body works, the better able you are going to be to train and feed it.
