Reading is a problem, isn't? The topic starter says that he/she has Mate version: MATE Desktop Environment 1.2.0, the theme he/she wants is made for Mate version: MATE 1.6.. It could work, it could not work. Best to avoid any issues/problems/not laoding the theme is to upgrade MAte.
A properly performed update of the Mate desktop should give no problems. You're only updating the desktop, not the whole system. When i was running Mint 14 with Cinnamon, I updated the cinnamon version from 1.6 to 1.8 without any noticeable issues.
And when a theme is specially made for a single version (in this case version 1.6) and the theme itself is not backwards compatible, it's not worth trying out that theme..
