Okay, so who are the best grapplers in each UFC weight class? Not best wrestler or pure submission artist, but the best overall grappler. My picks: HW: Werdum Josh Barnett Hon. Mention-Mir, Big Nog if he hadn't retired. LHW: Jon Jones. His combo of wrestling ability, GnP and willingness to work for submission is the best. MW: Jacare, duh. WW: Maia. Again, duh. LW: So tough to pick. Tons of great grapplers, but most excel in one area (Khabib TDs for example). Nate has a great guard and top control but not a great wrestler. Ferguson is a good grappler too. I'll go with Khabib just because his TDs are so unstoppable. FW: Aldo when he uses it. Edgar is a great grappler too but doesn't attempt many sub's. Oliviera is very good, so is Holloway. BW: Tough to go against Cruz, such a great base but Sterling has shown to be a great grappler. But I'd vote Dom. FLW: Mighty Mouse. He's #1 P4P for a reason. I know I stuck to more well known guys, surely some of you with more grappling experience can tell us some others. For all time, I'd go: HW-Werdum, Big Nog, Mir, Barnett LHW-Shogun is up there, as is Machida. Outside of UFC its Arona by a mile. MW-Demian Maia, Jacare WW-GSP, Hughes. LW-BJ, duh.
