This ain't your daddy's boxing match.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is full-on combat. It's a combination of a bunch of different types of sports: wrestling, boxing, kick boxing -- even Jujitsu! Check out the video above to see what you'll need to know before stepping onto the mat.
See more about this extreme sport on HLN's "American Journey," hosted by Ty Pennington. We follow a 21-year-old MMA fighter who's working hard to make it to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). HLN traveled to Russia to see him compete in the biggest fight of his life. If he wins, he's closer to his dream of making it to the UFC. If he loses, his dream could be gone forever.
Find out if he wins or loses on HLN's "American Journey," hosted by Ty Pennington, on Sunday April 14 at 7 p.m. ET.
