But the larger point that eludes you is this. While some MMA champions (Coleman/Couture) wrestled at an Olympic or International level, others (Cain/Jones/Weidman) might have been D-1 All American or elite at the Juco level. But one thing is pretty fucking clear. Wrestlers become elite MMA fighters and MMA champions a lot more regularly than non-wrestlers.
What you should not menstruate too heavily over is whether someone was a 2 time NCAA Champion or a guy that came in 3rd and 5th in the country for 2 years, or whatever. At that level, the margins of victory are so small, and the one that is the most likely to succeed in MMA is not necessarily the one with the better wrestling pedigree, but the one that has the most adaptable style to MMA.
Great post, will cease menstruation.

Bendo: a very good fighter in a very, very good division, who is very, very, very lucky with the judges.
