    In addition to 'Contenders', "Combat Wrestling" is pretty cool.

    I've been wondering a lot about this as well. It seems like Japanese MMA fighters are a lot more submission-oriented than Americans, and submission grappling is obviously a more popular sport over there.
    Is it really just because of the popularity of Japanese pro-wrestling?

    Jiu Jitsu has much more of an impact on American MMA because the Gracies had their hand in designing the UFC when it first started.
    Yes, it is.
