His ideals of taking the best of various arts to make your own (not to mention his popularity and influence on martial artists since the 70's) definitely had influence on modern MMA. People need to remember, he pretty much broke the mold with his idea on not sticking to a particular style. Combine that with mixed discipline competitions like K-1, add in some marketing bam, you got MMA.
