In a standard MMA match, fighters compete in three rounds, each lasting five minutes. Normally, three judges decide the outcome of each round based on a 10-point scoring system, similar to that of boxing. This means the winner will receive 10 points and the loser nine or less, based on their performance. At the end of the match, the points from the three rounds would be totalled, and the fighter with the most points wins.
In MMA, there is no single fighting style that trumps all, although over the past 20 years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai have proven to be the two most effective martial arts, says Chilson.
