I think it is potentially dangerous at calling mma a sport if you are considering it with any olympic sport I think the same holds true for school sports. Wrestling is a sport, but mma can feed off the sport so to speak and turn it around into a non-sport disciplined way of living. Mma to me is like not having one uniform but lots of different disguises that you can manipulate at your enemy.
TAEKWONDO? Who is this dude? Get the heck outta here. Coming to an MMA board and then questioning its legitimacy as a sport.
