MMA In The Olympics Just A Matter Of Time

Dana White's recent remarks regarding the future of MMA in the Olympics was overshadowed by UFC 121, as well it should have been, but they are very reflective of the sport's current impact.

As long as I have be an avid MMA fan, I couldn't help but think about the great fights that would be on display for the for those that had pre-conceived negative opinions about the sport, or had never seen it before.

Wouldn't the spectacle that it would be and the great stories to come from it be enough to sway even the most stubborn opponents?

Probably not.

But either way, the sport of Mixed Martial Arts in the Olympics seems like a no- brainer to me considering the the rich history of Pankration in the games dating back to 648 B.C.

We're talking B.C. here, and MMA isn't in the Olympics?

What a shame.
