Abstract [en]

MMA (mixed martial arts) has expanded globally as entertainment, training and competition in recent years. MMA is a sport where techniques such as punches, kicks, throws and joints are used to defeat the opponent in unarmed close combat. Standing techniques such as punches and kicks are of great importance in sports and coaches / athletes strive to develop efficient techniques. The study investigates how UFC athletes work with distance moves relative to each other in knockout or tech knockout matches, comparisons were also made between a heavier and an easier weight class to detect any differences in behavior. Data was collected through a match observation where a total of 50 matches from the MMA event were collected with reverse chronological order starting from fight night Johnson VS Reis. The results showed that there were differences between movement and non-occupation at KO / TKO, but also that they were not significant. The same conclusion was made for comparisons between the weight classes. When there was an individual move, it was most common for it to move forward and the most common movement between athletes was forwards. Handling of dynamic and static distances is likely to have impact on elite athletes within MMA, but the results show that the difference between athletes in different weight classes is not significant and is likely to be affected to an equal extent by individual athletes' skills.

Abstract [sv]

Kampsporten MMA (mixed martial arts) har expanderat globalt som underhållning, träning och tävling under de senaste åren. MMA är en sport där tekniker som slag, sparkar, kast och ledlås används för att besegra motståndaren i obeväpnad närkamp. Stående tekniker som slag och spark är av stor vikt inom sporten och tränare/atleter strävar efter att utveckla dessa tekniker på effektivaste sätt. Studien undersöker hur atleter inom UFC arbetar med distanshantering i förhållande till varandra vid matcher som avgjordes med knockout eller tekniskknockout, jämförelser gjordes också mellan en tyngre och en lättare viktklass för att påvisa eventuella skillnader i beteende. Data samlades in genom en matchobservation där totalt 50 matcher från MMA event samlades in med omvänd kronologisk ordning med start från galan fight night Johnson VS Reis. Resultatet visade att det fanns skillnader mellan rörelse och ickerörelse vid KO/TKO, men också att dessa inte var signifikanta. Samma slutsats gällde vid jämförelser mellan viktklasserna. När det skedde en enskild rörelse var det vanligaste att den skedde framåt och den vanligaste rörelsekombinationen mellan atleterna var framåt-framåt. Hantering av dynamisk och statiskdistans har med stor sannolikhet en betydande inverkan för elitatleter inom MMA, men resultatet visar att skillnaden mellan atleter i olika viktklasser inte är signifikant och påverkas troligen i lika stor utsträckning av individuella färdigheter hos atleterna.
