Assuming that MMA continues to prosper and that, in 10 years time, the UFC remains the premiere MMA organization, what type of evolution will we see? More precisely: 1. What skillsets would the average and elite fighters in the UFC have? 2. What structural changes will we see to the manner in which competition is bred out and contenders are built? Will we see more drawn out tournaments (e.g. like the FlW tournament) or year long leagues (like many other sports)? 3. What rule developments do you expect? - Maybe changes concerning issues such as weigh-ins (weight cutting), no open-figure gloves, stand-up times to avoid stalling, judges watching replays etc? 4. What type of strategies and skillsets will make long-reigning champions? Anything else interesting? Discuss.
