    Don't be silly. There is no "prior to MMA". Back then, there was nothing - not even a "then".

    In ancient Greece they had a form of MMA called Pankration and no doubt well before that they had MMA in some form or another.

    Even then, there had to be at least two separate martial arts in existence before there was "mixed" martial arts. Otherwise, what would you mix together?

    What part of "there was nothing before MMA" didn't you understand. Time didn't exist before MMA - there was no "before".

    No. Every martial art had its own elements. Only the Avatar could master all of them.
