Good luck with that. MMA has a media ban in some countries and in other it's still illegal.

Yes and that in big money countries like Germany and France. It doesn't even get sanctioned in NY yet. And the IOC people don't like martial arts in general anyways, so I highly doubt MMA could become Olympic soon.

"If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world," coach Vladimir Uruimagov said, calling the decision "a blow to masculine origins."

He added: "It turns out this committee is headed by representative of these minorities," clarifying that he meant sexual minorities.

"It is necessary for millions around the world who understand that this is a man’s sport and who understand the need to continue the human race to go out and explain their position to the Olympic Committee," he said. "We should prove and explain that in any other case there is no future."

This boggles my mind. Really didn't think we would still be having discussions like this by now.

Honestly I'm wondering which sports could possibly take it's place considering whom they are going against. Then again the IOC made this dumb bell decision so they may make another one. However I should note that they've added sports back that have been dropped before.

Hey now, let's not fight homophobia with homophobia. There is nothing erotic about wrestling. It's a beautiful sport. It's a one on one war.

Na, there was no homophobic intent in my statement. As you can see in my first post in this thread, I have nothing against wrestling and I'm annoyed myself that it's going to get removed from the Olympics. But of course wrestling has a homoerotic aesthetic (not to be confused with homosexual), it doesn't make wrestlers nor spectators automatically homosexual though, but it definitely doesn't put that coach in a place to ramble about a homosexual conspiracy.
