Lol just no. It's stupid. These guys already make millions and wipe up the countries with few NHL players. Once you turn pro at boxing or figure skating you can't enter the Olympics. Even FIFA keeps pros to under a certain age for the Olympics. Why? Because its corny to have millionaire pros beat the shit out of dudes that need to hold down regular jobs. Even the tennis pros need to fuck off.

Sad...Countries in Eastern Europe, Central & North Asia, North America, and parts of the Mid-East should ban together to protest.For wrestling, the Olympics is sort of the pinacle of the sport.As the World Cup is to soccer/football.As the Super Bowl is to American Football.

Times change. I remember when there was resistance to bring in the X game types.Now they are among the most watched events.No MMA will never be apart of the Olympics, because Boxing is already an event.In fact I would like to see how the Executive board members percieve any requests to bring in MMA.
