My BJJ instructor is a 3rd degree blaclbelt in Aikido, his knowledge of body mechanics is second to none, he often applies techniques from Aikido to BJJ,

In particular he can locate your centre of gravity in any situation and sweep your ass with no effort.

So in regard to knowledge of body mechanics Aikido definately could have some MMA application.
