UFC MMA MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

#1
I know that the army has martial arts as a category registered with the army sports board, and you can compete in jujitsu and boxing.

is there any way to go about getting MMA recognised in its own right? im sure the snowboarders must have had this problem a few years back.

are there many people out there interested in competing in MMA?

Boxing is no problem at all. I'm not sure if there is a recognised Army MMA association though?

there is talk of MMA gaining olympic recognition this year in time for 2012, without an official governing body i dont see how. however.....support is growing everywere for the sport im sure it will gain a full governing body etc soon.

maybe it would just be best to train boxing through the army and go outside for MMA? if we drum up enough people training MMA on civvi street when the time comes we ay have some fighters?

so is there a forum or mailing list to get them all together etc? maybe arrange a private comp?
So where would you get all the purse money from ??

purse money?

you mean to set it up with?

entry fees, other MMA clubs...i dont know, but a group of all the fighters would be a good start....we dont exactly need a octagon, it could be in a ring etc...

No way can MMA be an olympic sport - how many fighters can fight every 2 or 3 days??? Submission wrestling is a possible (but still unlikely) idea.

I have no idea but I do know that all you tattooed macho types used to fail commando training: Supposedly hard as nails but used to crack like feck on a yomp. You can't go far wrong with good old fashioned boxing.:)

Yot dont really have much of a clue about this do you, purse money is what the fighter gets paid. I for one would only fight full professional rules so that means getting paid.

Thanks guys! :D

Another superb performance by GSP; I expected the fight to be closer.
But will he do what bj did and go up a weight division and fight the champion, somehow i dont think he will.

Niether do I. But he's still one of the most complete fighters in MMA.

Pound for pound, I reckon only Fedor is a better Mixed Martial Arts Fighter.
