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??
