Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

This morning (Sept. 8, 2013) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the International Olympic Committed (IOC) voted to keep wrestling in the Olympics. This was great news, as wrestling is the oldest sport in the world, and has been a part of the Olympic games since ancient Greece. Seriously.

With such a great decision, the MMA community responded immediately with excitement on twitter.
