The reality is that outside of the US and Japan amateur wrestling doesn't really link into MMA very often. The main reasons would I'd guess be lack of exposure to MMA in other nations and that wrestling is considerable less "amateur" in them. When you get past collage in the US funding for a wrestling career is very difficult to find so MMA is the obvious career choice(as pro wrestling was in the past), in places like Russia though state funding is still I'd imagine fairly good if perhaps not at Soviet levels.

As far as Sambo goes it seems to replace ADCC competision for many fighters and I'm sure the argument they would make is that its actually closer to MMA given that it involves striking and setting up quick submissions rather than lengthy positional battles.
