A variety of takedowns, ground controls, joint locks and chokes are employed to subdue opponents in sport and self-defence situations. The inception of the UFC in 1993 served as a demonstration of its effectiveness, with Royce Gracie defeating eleven fighters to take 3 of the first 4 UFC tournament titles.
