A bunch of guys rolling around on the ground? They already have that kind of anime...

But if you aren't talking about UFC, practically all action manga/anime is MMA anyway if you remove the official aspects of the MMA organization.

Plus the 80s were full of MMA-related series. The tournament structure that a lot of popular modern manga/anime have is based upon those older MMA-related series.

I don't think an MMA style would work, perhaps if it were all street fighting that could fit with a story line. But in a ring, I just don't see a good anime coming out of that. I would like to see one though, it would definitely be something original.

When UFC returns to Japan (for the SECOND time in UFC history; last time 10+ years ago) in 2012, I'm sure the idea will be passed around like a cheap hooker. But it will be the equivalent of a video game tie-in of a movie.

Writing a series with identifiable, enjoyable, and deep UFC contenders will turn off the majority of UFC fans. No one wants to see [this week's UFC star] have actual emotions, feeling sorry-- maybe crying-- over losing a match, then working his way back to the octagon with the help of his friends, learning life lessons and what not.

And those introduced to UFC through the series will be turned off by the actuality of UFC. So there may well be a (short) series based on UFC through sheer force of money. But it will suck.

Wait, wrestling? I think that's what you're talking about...Sorry. I hate wrestling. If Japan DID make a show about wrestling, it'd either be about half-naked girls slapping each other and crying, or overly muscled mostly-gay men hugging on the ground.

Instead of a different type of show, LET'S MAKE MORE HAAAAAAREMS! < Japs

Japan made quite a few series about female wrestling.

The 80s. It's all in the 80s.
