We generalize the Hausdorff fuzzy metric in the sense of Rodríguez-López and Romaguera, and we introduce a new M-fuzzy metric, where M-fuzzy metric can be thought of as the degree of nearness between two fuzzy sets with respect to any positive real number. Moreover, under ϕ-contraction condition, in the fuzzy metric space, we give some common fixed point theorems for fuzzy mappings.
