The main reason and aim behind its creation as well as the event was to pit fighters, with different fighting styles, against each other in order to determine which form of martial arts dominates them all. The event featured fighters who mastered in disciplines like Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing and Wrestling among many other styles.
