MMA in the Olympics? It was called PANKRATION, let’s bring it back!



Boxing and Wrestling are the oldest combat sports created by the Ancient Greeks, and thereafter they created a hybrid of the two: PANKRATION. This is the one true ‘Father’ of modern Mixed Martial Arts, and it was in the Olympics for nearly a millennia. In more modern times, when the Olympics were revived, the short-sighted people in charge would take all of the original sports, except Pankration. Through this omission, we have missed out on over 100 years of Olympic level competition and exposure to Pankration and in a way, MMA.
