    Well if you've got good BJJ, you'll be a threat on the ground.

    And if you've got good wrestling you can dictate where the fight takes place.

    Wrestling all day, err'day.

    There is a far greater focus on control in wrestling, which is why wrestlers with good submission defense often destroy top notch BJJ players in MMA matches. In a grappling tournament where a fight must end in submission, wrestling doesn't usually prevail.

    That's like asking if cheese or sauce is more important on a pizza.

    There is no meaningful difference between BJJ and wrestling in MMA in 2012.

    If a wrestler does not know BJJ he will not win many Pro MMA fights, so...

    Well. Alone BJJ is so much better but a wrestler with BJJ defense is better than a pure BJJ guy

    Yes, it is the dough. So that means striking> bjj or wrestling.

    Or at least master Sub Defense if you are relying on the Wrestling.
    It appears that a variety of skills are now necessary to compete at the top.

    A wrestler that knows nothing of BJJ will get tapped like a little girl in seconds.

    A wrestler that has a solid understanding of, and training in BJJ defense will lay on a pure BJJer for a decision fairly easily.
