    Cruz, his wrestling for MMA is perfect. If you look at his whole career basically 99% of the time he wins the wrestling exchanges, he rarely gets taken down, and he has a fantastic fast double leg and he has some good trips and throws too.

    Some good suggestions here, I don't think Chiesa is as good as Ferguson or Khabilov, but he is up there. Also, Varner retired last year I think, or the year before. Cruz and Dillashaw are both excellent. Collard is okay, but he hasn't been able to use his wrestling as much.
