    Combining the different aspects of combat (striking grappling etc)is nothing new, here is a brief history of MMA and its antecedents:

    Pre Olympic world, combat arts are fragmented into armed and unarmed combat, with armed combat being far more refined and important.

    early Olympic time period (still B.C.) unarmed combats sports such as wrestling, and an early form of boxing are highlighted and respected, and then with the inclusion of Pankration ( a mixture of the two) in the 3rd Olympic games the first Mixed martial art is born.

    in the 1800's after much time of segregation, and refinement behind closed doors of arts that place focus on developing skills in a specific skill set, the arts finally start to mingle together again significantly, perhaps because the skill sets such as they are are competing for the same audiences as they are being introduced to new countries, largely by Asian coaches travelling and teaching across Europe, to the UK or to Australia and America.

    In the late 1800's much spectator interest is placed in NHB and mixed styles or mixed rules contests and at the very end of the century (1899) Bartitsu is founded.

    In the early 1900's Merikan contests were becoming popular in the pacific rim, Asian slang for "American fighting" Merikan contests pitted a boxer against a Jiu Jitsu exponent. meanwhile in south America after the spread of Kosen Judo had become popular and the gracies had put a greater emphasis on the ground game, Vale Tudo matches and the gracie challenge were becoming regular staples of Brazilian Culture.

    the 1960's was dominated by Bruce Lee, who was himself an avid cross training martial artist, which left an undeniable impact on the martial arts scene.

    1963 Gene LeBell Vs Milo Savage: famous Judoka and wrestler Gene LeBell proves the value of grappling by choking out Boxer Milo Savage in their mixed rules match.

    1976 Muhammad Ali vs Antonio Inoki: another famous mixed styles bout which ended in a drawn out stale mate as neither fighter chose to engage his opponent in his area of expertise.

    1989 First professional Shooto Event.

    1993 Pancrase and the UFC form.

    2000 Unified rules are Developed

    2001 Zuffa purchases UFC

    2005 T.V. reality show "the ultimate fighter" debuts

    2011 WEC merges with UFC and Zuffa purchases strikeforce, solidifying the UFC's dominance on the MMA landscape.

    This is of course a very sparse history of MMA but is certainly enough to get you started in your wish to "edukate" yourself, as you look into each of these i am quite sure that they will lead you to pages on the internet detailing much of the stuff i have left out.
