UFC is joining the fight to help save Olympic wrestling
"[Wrestling] needs to be more fan-friendly, it needs to be more exciting. I've met with a lot of the top guys in wrestling. Actually I met with them last Tuesday, and yeah, the UFC is joining the fight to help save Olympic wrestling. Not just Olympic wrestling, but colleges are dropping wrestling now. High schools have been dropping wrestling... I've personally funded tons of wrestling programs, and the UFC has funded tons of wrestling programs for high school kids. It's in the discussion phase. These guys are going out and fighting the fight, and whatever they need from me and what I think I could do, [I'll do]."
I'm really happy to see the UFC fighting so hard both at the Olympic and local levels to save wrestling. I also agree with Dana that promotions like Bellator should be working hard to save wrestling as well. How do fencing and curling not get cut, but wrestling does?
