actually in 2004 the IOC had pankration on the table as a new sport to the olympics...basically mma cept no punches to the head allowed....the ended up cutting it as there were too many sports anyways...they cut all new medal sports but i'm pretty sure it might be in 2012....i'll ask a couple of guys i know who are participating in the olympics this summer if they can ask someone what the scoop is on adding new sports
