MMA is still an under-known sport because of a few reasons.

1.) MMA Fighter Pay isn't exactly Athlete pay. Hearing news about a guy winning the Bantamweight Belt in the UFC is like getting a months paycheck while working as a manager at Walmart, no one cares outside the MMA community and no one really thinks of it as a serious thing.

2.) People like Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones drive the average person away from the sport. Reason? Because they have a brutal sense of ethics that makes people feel uncomfortable if they are new to it. I've introduced several people to the sport of MMA and as soon as they saw these two fighters they said ""We can't stand hearing them or watching them berate people physically or verbally."" and ended up not watching it again. There are more than just these two people though - but to sum this up I'd say people consider the sport to be like ****-fighting because of the bad seeds.

3.) No dedicated arenas / venues for MMA that seat over 100k people.

4.) Poor marketing by stupid people.

5.) Lack of expansive MMA based / MMA funded gyms across the states or the world. If more gyms opened up saying they would educate people in various styles, or just allow you to pay a cheap amount to simply workout there - the sport would grow.
