Perhaps... and as a wrestler (way back in the day) I am a fan of wrestling.

However, wrestling is a pretty small component of MMA -- useful things from wrestling that carry over to MMA are: takedowns, takedown defense, and maybe a little bit of ground control (but that can be quickly negated by a good BJJ artist).

Wrestling does not have submissions, or submission defense and there is also no striking in wrestling.

I dunno.
