Dana White: 'I hope Im alive' to see MMA in the Olympics

MMA in Olympics will happen



"I hope I'm alive to see it. I don't think it's going to happen soon, but then again I thought it was going to take longer than it did for us to get where we are today.... There's still a lot of work to be done, but seeing mixed martial arts in the Olympics would be incredible.... If you combine boxing, judo and wrestling, what do you have? That's what mixed martial arts is."

UFC President provides a realistic (and unfortunate) assessment of the possibility of mixed martial arts becoming an Olympic event one day soon during the UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" press conference today in Chicago. We can dream, can't we? That's apparently all we can do ... for now.
