yep. IIRC pankration was one of the earliest events. why would they drop this?

A "lite" form of MMA should be in the olympics.. something like PANCRASE with the slaps and the foot wear.

This is all because the ioc was very disappointed about the low female turnout for wrestling, and because feminists raised a stink about too much money being spent (wtf? wrestling costs very little) on an all-male sport.

Same reason why Title IX is destroying high school and college wrestling.
