    Which one discipline/combat sport would you rather have a high level background in before starting in MMA? For example judo, karate, TKD, catch wrestling, sanshou, sambo... hope everyone doesn't just pick sambo now that I mentioned it, lol.

    Or maybe bar brawling style:

    Ok not exactly combat sports but everyone is going to pick either sambo or karate - you'd be an idiot otherwise - like me.

    Combat Sambo obviously. The best single martial art.

    There aren't many of them entering but those who did are legit. Fedor, Khabib, Minakov...

    Stiker Nikita Krylov started training Sambo a bit and started submitting BJJ black belts with ease.

    i'd probably say judo or karate as they both offer unique skills that are leveragable to mma. once you apply your skills to mma you need to train boxing, muay thai, bjj, wrestling anyway.

    fedor and khabib are high level judo black belts. judo + bjj seems to be a better and more complete package than sambo. imo.
