When we talk about MMA evolution, we are not talking about how new techniques are invented. We are talking about how new techniques are being implanted and utilized more in MMA. Like calf kicks and cage grappling for example. MMA fighters getting better at boxing and fighting at a higher pace are also signs of evolution. Another thing people don't realize is that having better athletes is also part of MMA evolution. As MMA continues to get more popular, it's bound to attract more and better athletes from around the world. I don't think people realize how much more popular MMA is currently compared to the 2000s or the early 2010s.
