    It would be great to see an Olympic style Martial Arts event run in a similar way.
    mma will never ever ever get to olympics.Judokas and wrestlers are top level fighters not aspiring fighters. Some Judokas and wreslters would make awesome mma fighters some wouldn't. Craig Fallon is in the judo squad and Alex owen Subbed him with a triangle in 1st which is an excellent result. Any judoka or wrestler wanting to take up mma would need to train mma to compete at a high level.

    Yes, no disrespect meant to any Judokas or Wrestlers. Of course they must be top level to be there in the first place. But what kind of career is it? I wouldn't have thought they get enough sponsorship (apart from an elite few) to quit their day jobs.
