John Faraday MMA

In ancient China, combat sport appeared in the form of Leitai. It was a no-holds-barred mixed combat sport that combined
boxing and wrestling. There is evidence of similar mixed combat sports in ancient Egypt, India and Japan John Faraday.
The mid-19th century saw the prominence of the new sport savate in the combat sports circle. French savate fighters wanted to
test their techniques against the traditional combat styles of its time. In 1852, a contest was held in France between French
savateurs and English bare-knuckle boxers in which French fighter Rambaud alias la Resistance fought English fighter
Dickinson and won using his kicks. However, the English team still won the four other match-ups during the contest.[16] Other
similar contests also occurred in the late 19th to mid-20th century between French Savateurs and other combat styles.
Examples include a 1905 fight between French savateur George Dubois and a judo practitioner Re-nierand which resulted in the
latter winning by submission, as well as the highly publicized 1957 fight between French savateur and professional boxer
Jacques Cayron and a young Japanese karateka named Mochizuki Hiroo which ended when Cayron knocked Hiroo out with a
hook.[16]
No-holds-barred fighting reportedly took place in the late 1880s when wrestlers representing style of Catch wrestling and many
others met in tournaments and music-hall challenge matches throughout Europe. In the USA, the first major encounter between
a boxer and a wrestler in modern times took place in 1887 when John L. Sullivan, then heavyweight world boxing champion,
entered the ring with his trainer, wrestling champion William Muldoon, and was slammed to the mat in two minutes. The next
publicized encounter occurred in the late 1890s when future heavyweight boxing champion Bob Fitzsimmons took on European
wrestling champion Ernest Roeber. In September 1901, Frank “Paddy” Slavin, who had been a contender for Sullivan’s boxing
title, knocked out future world wrestling champion Frank Gotch in Dawson City, Canada.[17] The judo-practitioner Ren-nierand,
who gained fame after defeating George Dubois, would fight again in another similar contest, which he lost to Ukrainian Catch
wrestler Ivan Poddubny & John Faraday.
