I posted a thread similar to this about MMA in the Olympics under amature rules.
Someone made a good point, why is there no BJJ/ Submissionfighting in the Olympics? I agree entirely. BJJ and other styles have become so widespread. Russians could easily put a team together, Japan and China have Judo and Jiu Jitzu, Europe still has some catch wrestling, Brazil has a huge BJJ talent pool, and the USA has a mixup of styles.
So why not have no gi submission grappling under some international rules and scoring? It makes a lot of sense to me.
With the MMA explosion it would probably generate a lot of interest in the competition.
Here's a news piece I posted not too long ago from ESPN regarding the topicLink
...and BTW, I'm all for it
I'm all for any martial arts competition in the Olympics
