True, Sports like Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Weightlifting etc although have the best sportsmen in that sport participating the sport itself they are not professionals and in most cases the sport is not a "pro sport" like Judo even the best in the world as still amateur sportsmen.

So if MMA was an Olympic sport the likes of Fedor, Wandy and ALL other pro fighters will be unable to participate.

I think they would have Bjj with a Gi on before ADCC style grappling tbh. I heard the problem is they're not allowed to represent a martial art or practice that has a certain country's name in it("Brazilian" jiu-jitsu)? I'm not sure how legit that is though so don't hold it against me

If Muay Thai and BJJ aren't in there now, MMA won't be for a while, or ever

That is true also BJJ isn't a very organized sport. Their are a bunch of different people doing their own things.

Grappling on the other hand has been accepted by USA Wrestling which is a huge step foward and it also allows more countries to get involved because unlesss you train BJJ you aren't going to be able to compete however if you train any number of things you have a chance in grappling.

The IOC is incredibly conservative, stuffy, old fashioned, pick your adjective. No way in hell does MMA get in the Olympics for a lonnnnnnnng time, if ever.

Actually, I shouldn't be that negative. The IOC is also incredibly corrupt. If anyone was willing to fork out a few million dollars they'd put monkey knife fights on as an official event.

I agree with all your points for sure, but if people are practicing something like Sambo or Judo or wrestling then I see them sticking with that rather than No gi submission grappling. There are very few people who study No gi grappling exclusively... it's usually Bjj fighters or wrestlers or MMA fighters that are competing, and No gi is also much more popular in America.

I agree with your point on Judo and Wrestling however I don't believe Sambo is in the Olympics and the chance to win a medal could defaintly convince some Sambo practioners to switch to grappling.

I heard that IFBJJ is pushing to get BJJ accepted as an olympic sport, which would not only kick ass but is also very possible, more-so than MMA at least. BJJ or submission grappling as an olympic sport would be great, however MMA? Not so much IMO. They obviously wouldn't let pro's compete, which would only leave the much less experienced amatuers to compete. Although it would still definately be a step in the right direction for MMA as a sport, and would likely make it more accepted by people worldwide which would lead to it being legalised in more states.
