So MMA will decay the same as wrestling, boxing, and judo, right?

BTW, if any of you douches don't get what I'm talking about in the above post, is that wrestling, boxing, and judo have all been considered the greatest martial art/combat sport ever for a certain period of time.
Hell, judo is still the second most popular sport ever, after soccer.
Judo being a popular sport, catch wrestling (which evolved into freestyle and American folkstyle) once considered the greatest martial art in the early 1900s, and boxing being considered the purest form of fighting for some time in the second half of the 20th century.
All martial styles have prevailed, become even more effective within their ruleset then before, and have not decayed into a 'TMA'. None are as popular as they used to be. Today, MMA rules. Fifty years from now, MMA may not be the greatest thing ever, but still will be a highly practiced sport and martial art just as, if not more, effective than today.
It's hard to argue with that distribution. :P
