    Wrestling dropped from Olympic Games

    Tue, 2013-02-12 14:24 — Benjamin Bieker

     While it is seven years away a lot of people are up in arms over the governing body of the Olympics excluding wrestling from the 2020 Olympics Games. Wrestling will still be included in the 2016 event which is set to take place in Brazil. There is still a possibility that the event could be added in a vote to make the games have 26 events, but according to sources it looks very grim. This leaves a lot of changes for the world of MMA and BJJ by extension.
