It'd be, at best, like watching basketball: "O, yeah the Gasols make Spain passable & there's goofy lookin' Dirk rocking it for Germany, but USA just crushes of course."

I really like the idea of BJJ becoming an Olympic sport. That would be friggin' phenomenal!!
Ariel is kinda cool,but you know I know better! Almost lured one of my hybrids one of these folks into a bad pick...

It's sad isn't it? MMA has become Storage Wars?

Field Hockey is an Olympic Sport for both men and women. You could do MMA as an olympic sport if you just adjust the rules a bit. They would need to be a combination of PRIDE and UFC rules for it to work. No kicks or knees to the head of a downed opponent and remove elbows on the ground. As for the tournament you would just have to have heavy qualifying and make it an 16 Man tournament. You start it 2 days before the start of the olympics which would give you 19 days for the tournament. You only need 4 rounds which means you have a round every 5 or 6 days with weigh ins the day before each round. I think it would work but I would rather see BJJ
