I would love to see China start letting their fighters get involved in MMA. Would change the sport in my opinion.

Who Nows............
I hear Karate is pretty big over there. But unless they have a ground game they will get killed. I assume there are some good fighters there but who knows.

bruce lee was a god in the 70's...and they have had 30 years to improve upon that....im pretty sure that little old chinese ladies could take fedor now, via preying mantis handbag to the head.

Or maybe. Its not old ladies you have to be scared of. But rather the high level athletes.................... the chinese are known for intense training of their atheletes. I know a swimmer from there. He used to train 8-9 hours a day. Thats a full work day for most people.

most of china's athletes train 8-9 hrs a day / 6 days a week and if they show talent they are forced to start at an early age and taken away from their families for the majority of their childhood. also most communist countries are the same - china and cuba among others wont let their premier athletes compete outside of their home countries for fear of defection. they are essentially their governments property

was a joke guys.


china is doing really well in global athletic competitions (medal counts on the rise in the olympics)

but at the same time, competition breeds innovation and improvement. everyone thought the soviet hockey teams in the 70's were unbeatable. they werent, they were really good (and went beyond the 8 hour a day training, they were moved from their homes to a central location to eat/breathe/live together - and they still are) but they arent unbeatable - forced training cant make you love what you do. which is why small countries where certain sports are ingrained in the national psyche will still dominate a good portion of the time over strict/communist training type countries.

with 1.2 billion people and strict training methods (if thats all it took) they would be the best at everything, with that kind of pool to draw from. my point was that we know little/nothing about their mma scene (if they have one?)

i would be interested to find out. tai chi translates well to mma...........

Ok first off Karate is Japanese not Chinese. I think Kung Fu would definitely be a factor in any MMA fight, look what it did for Keanu Reeves.They might have to dome the cage though because everyone knows that Chinese people can fly. I also think the future of UFC will lay on the back of the inevitable MMA forms competition so China's got a perfectly performed puncher's chance.
