If you want a compelling photo and want to have a good chance to catch one you need high frames per second, very fast focussing and very good focus tracking. Also, you need to be able to single out the subject so our eyes are drawn to where I want them to be.
That is why they invented D4 and 1Dx. Now, thart being thee pinnacle for sportshooting the current m43s are about the opposit of that. D7000 and 7D are much closer to that than any mFT camera currently.

mFt can overcome all those hurdles bar the subject isolation, which will be difficult. I can see how software can blur things out, giving that isolation. When camera processing power gets powerfull enough, smart software settings should be able to tackle that too. But that is an assumption and we are not there at all currently.

If you are comparing m43 to APS-C the subject isolation difference is not that great (2/3 stop) assuming you are using similar equivalent focal length and lens aperture.  Once m43 fills out the long end with faster lenses then this will be overcome for the most part.  The DOF differences between m43 and FF (2 stops) will be much more noticeable and impossible to overcome without a huge lens, negating the compactability of m43.
