I'd like to see him Uchimata someone and then one punch KO them on the ground while still holding their arm ala Bruce Lee. He needs to complete it with the full body flex and the "AWWWWWwwwww" though for it to be truly effective.

This is a surprisingly constructive thread. I avoided it at first because I expected the ignorant, "Other martial arts being effective is just a myth."

Let me first say, I think there are quite a few martial arts that would be highly effective with the right combination of defense, similar to how Lyoto Machida implemented Shotokan and Sumo. As others have said, the lack of Chinese martial art systems in modern MMA disappoints me. I'd like to see a fighter with a solid heritage in one of these styles make an entry into MMA.

While my familiarity with Korean, Chinese, and Thai martial arts is a bit lacking, I'd love to see practical applications of some of the Japanese martial arts I'm familiar with. I think Aikido would be highly effective. Someone mentioned Ninjutsu, but I'm personally not sure how well that would fare in such a limiting environment. Most Ninjutsu is designed to kill, so I question how practical its uses could be in a sporting environment.

I'd be very interested to see someone with a deep heritage in a Goju Ryu type of Karate, in modern MMA. I believe they have some of the most effective conditioning, and they focus on unique facets of martial arts.

Like my favourite Uchi Mata

Would also be cool to see WT and the chain punches, Kali (which is used in the Bourne films) and Keysi Fighting Method which you see in Batman Begins.

haha thanks for the bump. I think a lot of unorthodox kicks could be useful, like Barboza's wheel kick, it works very well because he throws a spinning back kick and then the next time he goes through the same motion the opponent is expecting the kick to come to the body but instead he comes high and can almost knock your head off.

Anderson shows some wing chun techniques right before he goes in for the kill.

I like the Muay Thai X TKD style that this guy and Cyrus Washington have.

Would love to see some of the chinese martial arts represented like : Bajiquan

In RL it's actually used by the chinese secret service to protect dignitaries and is quite effective. It's a close range explosive style that has a lot of illegal mma strikes however so not sure how effective it would be within the rules. In that clip I especially love the elbow follow ups for combos those could be incorporated by an MMA fighter.

Hmm can't seem to embed properly

I think Jeet Kun Do and Britsu could be used alot more in MMA. Can you imagine someone fighting like Bruce Lee did in movies? Also Britsu is something that is very underrated.
