The World MMA Association’s(WMMAA) President, Vadim Finkelstein, has said that a  request will be sent in to the International Olympic Committee(IOC) in 2017 in an interview with Tass.

“In the next year we will give in our application to have MMA recognised as an Olympic sport. We already have our documents ready.”

Finkelstein went on to say that the WMMAA has “a very good chance to get a positive response, MMA is now the most popular sport on the planet, there are more than 60 countries in our federation”.

What do you think? Will MMA become an Olympic sport?
