For sure. That's the true evoluation of any sport. Participants begin at younger ages, the bar for talent rises and rises until only the truly gifted can attain pro. In 20 years I think people like GSP, Anderson Silva, Cain and Fedor will be the standard and not the exception.
Just like the MLB, NBA and NFL, only the true cream of the crop make it, and hundreds of thousands of athletes are sifted through until the tip top remain to become pro.
