    Matt Hughes for wrestling

    You have to update your list :)

    Machida's striking style is pretty boring sometimes. Too much waiting, too long of periods without doing anything just circling. This shit gets boring way too quick for casual fans.

    If you want a karate guys to represent the striking you have Thompson right now. Conor if you want someone to polarize the crowds.

    For the grappling and subs - Werdum.

    For the wrestling probably JJ, DC, for MMA wrestling GSP obviously.

    I would show them RDA.

    He's tenacious, he's a violent striker, he can take you down, he can grapple you, he can submit you, he can knock you out, he can dominate you to a decision, and has a no nonsense style that everyone can relate to.

    Later on in their MMA experience I would introduce the more unique styles like Anderson or Maia.
