Mixed martial arts can enter the program of the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles at least as an exhibition sport. This was stated by the president of the International Federation of Mixed Martial Arts (IMMAF), Kerrith Brown.
“MMA is a rapidly developing sport, and we certainly want to become part of the Olympic family. We are working hard in this direction, and, of course, we have competitors. You know how popular MMA is in the United States, and we expect to join the Olympic family in 2028. It is likely that at the Games in Los Angeles, MMA will be at least an exhibition sport.
Khabib at the Olympics? Why not, he could perform, I think. Yes, we would be able to perform both professionals and amateurs – this is a matter of criteria. Let’s see what stage of joining the Olympic family we will be at in 2028, “ Brown said.
