The first UFC event was in 1993 and was intended to find out which martial art was the most effective. It had no weight classes and there were also unlimited five minute rounds; a fight could only end by stoppage. There were eight competitors and the whole tournament took place on one night.
It was won by one of the smaller competitors Royce Gracie, a practitioner of the then little known martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Gracie went on to dominate the early events and, along with Ken Shamrock, became the first man to enter the UFC Hall of Fame.
The organisation and the sport have come on a long way since those early days and the UFC began to work closely with athletic commissions to ensure the implementation of stricter rules and regulations. As the UFC began to evolve many of the stars that would go on to define it joined up such as Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva.
Though it had by this time gathered a small loyal fan base it was the year 2000, when brothers Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta along with Dana White purchased the UFC, that it began to become the huge organisation that it is today. They set about rebranding the sport and marketing it heavily in order to help it reach a larger audience.
One of the key reasons for the success of the UFC is due to the fact that as well as being an MMA organisation it also acts as the promoter. This is a crucial difference with boxing where independent promoters often search for the easiest route to the title or look for the most lucrative bouts.
The UFC promotes fights that it believes are competitive and evenly matched which more often than not results in highly entertaining and exciting bouts.
