If there were MMA olympics I'd hope it goes back to being about amateurs and not professionals... I guess if we had to pick professionals though I'd get Bj penn, Matt hughes, Dan henderson, Quinton jackson, Josh barnett.

if their was an MMA Olympics none of the fighters you guys mentioned could be in it sorry to burst your bubble. As soon as you get paid for doing the sport you do you can no longer be in the olympics

Thats not true. Professional baseball, hockey and basketball players are in the olympics. And almost every other sport has a world tour that has cash payouts.

MMA will definitely not be in the 2012 olympics. I see Bjj with a gi on or maybe submission grappling but MMA? Definitely not

Not happening, thnk about the limitations placed on numerous fighters after a UFC PPV, countries like the U.S. and Canada would never participate in a one or two day tournament.

I doubt it will happen and would hate to see what how the IOC would regulate it. Hell, even in boxing they have to wear helmets, I could see feet pads, shin pads, elbow pads on every fighter.

traf_quake is an unknown quantity at this pointtraf_quake is an unknown quantity at this point
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
