If MMA had olympics which countries do you think would have good teams and who would represent them.
I think the U.S. team would be BJ at lightweight GSP at 170 Rich or Hendo at 185 Quinton at Light Heavy and Randy would be at heavy
Fedor or Arlovski would be the Russian heavyweight.
I think Hermes Franca would be Brazil's 155 pounder.
I think Japan would have Gomi or Aoki at 155.
Anderson Silva would be Brazil's 185
first they should have a lot other olympic sports before mma.
but us team i would pick hughes, randy, quinton,hendo, and sherk
fedor for all weight classes
saku, gomi. and some other bras
brazil all gracies mauyha
HW LHW MW WW LW
US Barnett Rampage Lindland Hughes Sherk
Brazil Nogueira Shogun Anderson JZ
Japan TK? Saku? Okami Sakurai Gomi
Russia Fedor Fedor* Fedor** Fedor*** Fedor****
* - With left leg missing
** - Both legs missing
*** - Both legs and left arm missing
**** - All limbs missing
I obviously left some spots blank. I'm in lecture and couldn't be bothered to research that much.
Edit: When I originally typed this out, it was all neatly tabled to allow for easy reading. Apparently that's not allowed, so now it's a mess.
I believe that if MMA became an Olympic sport, the impact would be very big in countries where other martial arts currently are big, but where MMA still is pretty unknown. Those countries could possibly catch up pretty fast, making it more exciting.
If there was MMA in the Olympics, I'd go with these results.
FW: Gold: Norifumi Yamamoto - Japan
Silver: Urijah Faber - USA
Bronze: Jens Pulver - USA
LW: Gold: Takanori Gomi - Japan
Silver: BJ Penn - USA
Bronze: Sean Sherk - USA
WW: Gold: Georges St. Pierre - Canada
Silver: Matt Hughes - USA
Bronze: Hayato Sakurai - Japan
MW: Gold: Anderson Silva - Brazil
Silver: Dan Henderson - USA
Bronze: Paulo Filho - Brazil
LHW: Gold: Mauricio Rua - Brazil
Silver: Quinton Jackson - USA
Bronze: Ryoto Machida - Brazil
HW: Gold: Fedor Emelianenko - Russia
Silver: Mirko Filipovic - Croatia
Bronze: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Brazil
MMA is a sport that, if it will be one at all, will not be an olympic sport until about 30-40 years in the future. it is outlawed in most of the US, most of canada, many south american countries, like half of europe, and africa doesnt even probably know about it yet.
until it starts to go mainstream, there is no hope. and dont give me that "its mainstream" BS. go down the street and ask the average joe who Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan is. then ask them who Minotoro Noguiera or Fedor Emelianenko is. that should prove my point.
MMA is NOWHERE FREAKING NEAR mainstream. about as near as pluto is to the sun.
