UFC was founded in 1993 by Art Davie, Bob Meyrowitz, Rorion Gracie, David Isaacs, John
Milius, and Campbell McLaren. The UFC came from an idea by Art Davie when he proposed
the idea of a War of the Worlds tournament, which would be an eight-man single elimination
tournament. They started WOW production, later getting a contract for pay-per-views with SEG.
They called their show The Ultimate Championship.
When it was first founded, the UFC had the famous tagline of there are no rules. There were no weight-classes, time-outs or judges. There were only 2 rules, which were, no-biting and no eye-gouging.
