    Of course! The obvious natural progression of a legitimate sport is to turn it into a complete freak show, which barely resembles the sport at all. In the same way japense binocular soccer is the natural evolution of soccer!

    I sure hope you're a troll, because if people are really this stupid, i fear for the future of humankind.

    As for the future of MMA, I think it might be an NCAA sport some day.

    He has to be one or the other and not a guy who just found a link? God you guys are turning into pricks as you age.

    Maybe we should just have Wolf make a bot that answers every new OP with "**** you, don't post"

    Maybe we should just have Wolf make a bot that answers every new OP with "**** you, don't post"[/quote]He didn't just find a link, he said "some people think this is the future of MMA"

    And the way he created the thread, (IMO) was done in a manner that suggested that he himself thought that was the case. Even if he didn't think that, to give any creedence whatsoever to the idea that the video posted is the future of MMA makes him an idiot.

    If he posted this video and said "I found this link. This is funny/entertaining/whatever" I would say "Yes, you are right, this is funny/entertaining". But he didn't. I don't have any issue with endless reposting of videos (even stupid ones). But to suggest the video was in any way the "future of MMA" is idiotic.

    And on a side note, frankly i've barely aged at all.

    on a serious note i think the future of mma is a better development in the amature side and a possible future place in the olympics.

    theres another thread about amature mma here, where guys with little to no training get in the ring.

    I was wondering about the possibility of MMA being brought to the olympics myself recently.

    I wonder what changes would take place? Any rule changes, would there no longer be an octagonal cage (or boxing ring in some promotion companies), but some other type of fighting area.

    Or things like knees to the head of a downed opponent which varies by company, what would happen regarding that?

    Not that I think there's all that much of a push for it. The UFC certainly wouldn't want it to happen i would think.

    Pankration, anyone? Just make it a rule variation: Olympic Pankration. If you want to be real neat, just have an eventual out-of-bounds that necessitates a reset of the same position in the center of the ring with a penalty for abuse, and enforce some sort of aggression rule to keep out unsavory Machida-types. Wear blank blue-or-red trunks OR spandex shorts (just has to be the same for both) and blank, black gloves. This'll probably lead to sponsorship tattoos, but oh well.

    How many rounds of what length?

    Openweight? (you know you want to...)
