The term Mixed Martial Arts was coined by television critic Howard Rosenberg, in 1993, in his review of UFC 1. The term gained popularity when the website newfullcontact.com, then one of the biggest covering the sport, hosted and reprinted the article. The first use of the term by a promotion was in September of 1995 by Rick Blume, president and CEO of Battlecade Extreme Fighting, just after UFC 7. Jeff Blatnick was responsible for the Ultimate Fighting Championship officially adopting the name Mixed Martial Arts. Previously marketed as “Ultimate Fighting” and “No Holds Barred (NHB)”, Blatnick and John McCarthy proposed the name ‘MMA’ at the UFC 17 rules meeting in response to increased public criticism. The term is generally attributed to Howard Rosenberg.
