UFC a Team Sport? Input needed.

Recommended Posts

no. it is a 1 v 1 which is what makes it so great. each fighter takes what they know is various areas and applies it in a fight to gain and do various things.

 

Teams in mma are just training partners. it isnt like they can get in there and help u if u arent doing so well.

yeah not really. although wrestling is considered a team sport and it is 1vs1...everyone wrestles to achieve a team goal. MMA fighters are fighting for themselves with the only goal being to gain more individual success.

I guess you can look at it that way...

 

rarely will you see 2 fighters from the same camp willing to fight each other. so in essence yes, it can be classified as a team sport, with each individual trying to reach a level of success.

 

A good example would be MFS. Pat had Jens who was the LW champ, Matt who was the WW champ, and had Silva as the HW champ all at one point or another. So as a team/camp they held multiple titles at one point, train each other all the time, make everyone better everyday. A very good sign of a team concept imo.
