    This has been a discussion over the times. What are the best bases to compete in high level MMA?
    We can start at the best base ever, but 1 alone is not enough, so you can count the top 5 in order. I will give out my list from 1-5. Starting from best base:
    1. Wrestling
    2. Muay thai
    3. Bjj
    4. Kickboxing
    5. Boxing

    And what you have left:
    Greco-Roman wrestling (love this one, couldn't find a space)
    Judo
    Karate-kung-fu
    Jujitsu
    Japanese jujitsu
    Tae kwon do
    Capoeira
    Sambo

    You tell me your top 5.
    Also note, what the GOATS backgrounds are in.......

    I love Sambo also. ...
    Whatelse would you add??

    Born in Kentucky, Johnson grew up in Parkland, Washington where he attended Washington High School with and was a stand-out athlete in track, wrestling, and cross country. In wrestling, he placed 3rd and 2nd in state in his junior and senior years. Although he participated in track and cross country to improve his cardio for wrestling, he competed at the State Championships in both sports as well.[11][12]

    All about that base. Holly Holm and Miesha Tate have best ass in the league. Shout-out to Sage for those amazing quads and he has a sexy ass as well.

    Wrestling,Bjj,boxing,MT in no particular order. There are absolutely others that can help and are viable but these are the most important and even if you add nothing on top of those you are a complete fighter.

    To be honest the number one thing beyond styles and all that shit is size and toughness. But really, you can't go wrong with western boxing and wrestling. Good hands and wrestling ability in conjunction with toughness can get you a looooooooooooooooooooooong way in mma

    I think being an elite level boxer, then adding in the other skills would be the best, but in all honesty, all the top guys all had some form of wrestling training, early on. Cody may seem like a fighter that grew up on just boxing, but he was a really good HS wrestler, and same with Dom, and the other elites. I think Conor's one of the few elite fighters with a mainly boxing background, and even then, he probably started BJJ early on in his life.
