This is purely from a personal standpoint but I'd love to see someone in MMA representing Isshin-Ryu Karate. For those who don't know it's the sister defense style to Shotokan. I trained in it when I was younger before moving over to kickboxing and while I don't know how an Isshin-Ryu fighter would really do, Machida gives me hope due to his well representation of Shotokan.

As far as Ninjutsu or Shaolin Monk, I think it's been determined that Ninjutsu is purely an Assassinesque style. Meaning that their most useful techniques come from things that they couldn't do in the cage.

S.M. on the other hand simply doesn't have the ground game but if it was modified and a form of wrestling of BJJ were injected into it, I don't see why it wouldn't work. Though most of the forms such as animal and kata specific attacks would have to be completely ignored.

Personal Top Five

1. Brock Lesnar
2. Roy Nelson (KFP BAYBEE)
3. Clay Guida
4. Dan Henderson
5. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipović

I didn't know that about Isshin-Ryu. I started Shotokan last week and love it.

I'd love to see more judo techniques in MMA. (Karo, Sexyama)

It's essentially Muay Thai but all of the blocks are done with elbows and knees instead of forearms and shins, shit's sick
Is it just me that thinks blocking shit with you knee sounds incredibly stupid?

Not if you do it right. Look at how they do it. They block with knees and elbows on soft tissue (Thighs, biceps and forearms) not bone on bone.

There are thousands of lesser-known disciplines that would be very effective if you could incorporate some, not all, of the techniques into a nonlethal, non-serious injury causing, sparring-esque form. Most of the lesser-known disciplines are purely self defense. Hell, all disciplines are intended for self defense.

nah this is a good section for it, even though the other section is more appropriate when we have this discussion in that section it is usually only 2 to 3 people posting in it, I am curious as to see how this discussion goes in the ufc discussion.

and technically he said how would they fair in the ufc which goes by different rules then other mma orgs so it shall stay here

===================

Side note. I would like to see on PPV's the normal mma fights like we have now but have one fight on the card where they bring a master of one particular martial arts style vs another style of martial arts and let them defend their style in the octagon by fighting one another
