The year is almost over and despite a year to forget with injuries there were enough great fights for the UFC Ultimate Fight Collection to return for the third year in a row.

When it comes to today’s choice in fight entertainment, more and more Americans are turning to mixed martial arts. MMA is the fastest growing sport in the United States, combining boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, karate and all other types of martial arts. MMA requires skill and determination, stamina and fearlessness.
As a gamer I take much pride in seeing the medium evolve beyond just playing games. The gaming demographic does more than just play games. They are wrestling fans, sports fans and MMA fans who love to consume as much of their favorite past times as they do playing the newest games. Microsoft saw this evolving trend and decided to make the Xbox more than just a console but a hub for gamers to consume various amounts of content.
As Mixed Martial Arts continues to grow, so do the number of apparel companies looking to get their piece of the pie. What started out as just a few solid brands to choose from has now become a jungle of brands all vying for your money.
