I support Australia and secondary teams are usually smaller countries but for some reason i have found myself going for China in a few events if Australia wasn't there.

I like watching it all mostly, i was watching Rowing, Badminton and Volleyball yesterday in which i actually enjoyed watching them.

The sports i mainly watch though are Judo, Wrestling, Boxing, Weightlifting and Soccer.

No one can tell me where to catch the wrestling, judo and TKD action at?

Edit: I know where to watch them online. I'm requesting televised broadcasts.

Go to http://www.nbcolympics.com/ then click on 'local coverage.' Your NBC affiliate should be covering it as well as CNBC, MSNBC, and USA network. But if you're not in the US then I don't know.

I'm going with the swedish wrestlers (and I'm watching the Judo, obviously). Ara Abrahamian is swedens biggest medal hope in wrestling and I wanna see him succeed.

Pretty good Olympics so far. Phelps is mopping shit up, 5 golds so far. Little bit o' controversy, China's women's gymnastics team is too young, Spain's Men's basketball team (Pao Gasol from Lakers) doing asian eyes. Quite a few upsets US Men's beach volleyball team losing first round. Mens swimming freestyle relay with a crazy come from behind victory over the french (after the french were talking shit). US Women's gymnastics having such bad luck with injuries and some big mistakes.

DKent has a little shameless behaviour in the past
MMA Olympics?

I read on another website that MMA could possibly be considered as an Olympic event. I think this would bring alot of fanfare back to event. That being said assuming Dana doesnt use his almighty veto power to keep his fighters from competing and it doesnt interfere with his monthly PPV's what would the medalists look like? Also assuming they use the same weight class structure.
My opinion.

HW
Gold: Fedor Russia
Silver: Brock Lesnar USA
Bronze: A. Nogueira Brazil

LHW
Gold: Lyoto Machida Brazil
Silver: Gegard Moussasi Netherlands?
Bronze: Rashad Evans USA

MW
Gold: Anderson Silva Brazil
Silver: Nate Marquardt USA
Bronze: Yushin Okami Japan

WW
Gold: GSP Canada
Silver: Jon Fitch USA
Bronze: T. Alves Brazil

LW
Gold: BJ Penn USA
Silver: Not sure who other countries could throw in here...



I personally dont think it ill ever happen because it'll feature mostly UFC fighters and the UFC wont make money off of it but it would bring great international exposure to the sport if it did.

Bronze:

It may happen eventually, probably will if MMA continues to grow the way it has, but this is still many years away. 12-20 years I'd say, maybe more.

If the gymnastics thing with the ribbon can be a sport, anything is possible.
