    damn, I hit enter on accident. What I was trying to say was that
    Jamie Varner and Efrain escuado ( winner of the ultimate fighter season 8) also wrestled in AZ at Pima comminuty college. Same with Drew fickett.

    What are you talking about?
    The best wrestling style?
    The best look? lol. Such a strange question.

    It's not a strange question, and there's really no reason to deride it just because you didn't understand it.

    Honestly, I don't know if there is one program that has a better style for MMA than another. At the collegiate level, wrestling is pretty advanced, and the takedowns and takedown defense, which are key for MMA, are important components of any wrestler's game. The best mixed martial artists come from a wide array of schools, D-I to D-III, NAIA and JuCo. The matchup between CB Dollaway and Mike Massenzio is a rematch from their JuCo days. Rashad Evans and Gray Maynard both went to Michigan State, a ton of guys have come out of OSU and Dan Henderson, CB, Ryan Bader and Cain Velasquez wrestled for Arizona State. That being said, I don't think you can go wrong at the college level if you're preparing for a career in MMA.

    It's because of Arizona Combat Sports, not anything Thom Ortiz has done.

    Edman, please don't post the same question in two different forums. I just wrote a novel for you in the college wrestling forum.

    obviously it's because of Arizona Combat sports. I was wondering if PJ had any clue about what he was tlaking about or if he was simply trying to say no to everything I post. I guess we'll never know now. Still waiting on his answer to what program does have the best style for MMA.
    Lets go Brent!

    Varner wrestled JuCo in Arizona but he finished up at Lock Haven which is in Pennsylvania.

    I would say its a school that produces a lot of slick explosive wrestlers who dont need to work their offense off of tie ups. A school like oklahoma st pops up in my head before a school like iowa. The iowa guys are more of the grinder variety who beat you with handfighting and score off of a lot of snap downs front heads and single legs.

    Arizona Combat is obviously a great resource and has been beneficial to the fighters development but to me its more of the fact that most of the Arizona st guys were in school together and were friends so they influenced each other to get involved with mma. Velasquez, Dollaway, Bader, Fluckinger were all teammates and Simpson was their coach so it makes sense that once one or two got involved the others followed. Similar to how Hendricks, Roller, and Rosholt all went with Team takedown and train in Vegas.

    One last thing is that Arizona st has not been one of the top dogs lately so they are not necessarily producing olympic caliber wrestlers. They still produced some very good wrestlers but they are more inclined to go into mma than pursue the international scene. Now a school like Iowa has been producing more guys who are competing on the international scene so they are not as likely to go to mma.
