I find that to be a pretty interesting comment, I mean if you look at all the current MMA Champs in the UFC

155- Frankie Edgar/Gray maynard- wreslters
170- GSP- Amazing Wrestling
185- Horrible Wrestler
205- Shogun- Decent wrestler
Heavyweight- Cain- Wrestler

Then if you look at who would give shogun and anderson fits, it would be a good wrestler, So I would say wrestling is a pretty big component of MMA, and in my opinion the best base for fighters starting out.
That being said, I never understand why they dont have fights in the same weight class as the coaches on TUF.
