If you're unfamiliar with MMA or have never attended a mixed martial arts event, Evolve MMA gives a great explanation of what you're missing:

MMA is a blend of different martial art styles to create a comprehensive martial art that is governed by its own rules. The early days of mixed martial arts were the first time in modern human history that fighters from different martial arts styles could compete with one another. It gave the world a chance to finally answer the question of “which martial art is the best?”

They add that if you're wondering which martial art is the best, the answer to that question is “none”. It all comes down to how competent a fighter is at their particular style has more to do with their ability to defeat an opponent than the specific style they train in.
