    Pankration is an ancient Greek Olympic sport that combined wrestling and boxing. There were, however, no hits allowed while on the ground.

    I guess the UFC could build their female fan base if fighters were naked. I think they should test it out with Rousey's bout first though.

    As said before, pankration was kind of an early mma. Most techniques were allowed.
    Pankration had several very abusable rules which made the sport very short-lived amongst its athletes though.

    For example, small joint manipulation was allowed, and fingerbreaking was a very common act during the fights. Also, tapping out was considered really shameful, so very often the fights would be stopped only after the other fighter was totally unconsious or beaten into a bloody pulp.

    It was just an excuse for guys to get naked together and roll around. Later it became wrestling.
