Which style of wrestling is better for MMA?
Obviously such a question would depend on issues such as the quality of instruction etc. However, all things being equal, what works best in the cage?
Hendo and Randy are two great MMA fighters from a Greco background. If you watch Hendo's fight with Anderson Silva, the way he takes Silva to the ground was pure Greco IIRC. But apart from that I haven't seen much Greco from him in a long time.
Randy goes for a freestyle type single or double takedown more often than not, which is forbidden in Greco.
Most of the wrestling I see in MMA is freestyle. The leg attacks and trips are not at all Greco. So is it fair to say that all things being equal, Freestyle gives you more options for MMA?
I think the easier way to look at it is freestyle gives you more options.
Greco is limited to the clinch.
