Hi Anthony. Wrestling is a great style, I know one thing I'm sorely lacking is some good takedowns. Before you enter MMA i'd recommend finding a dedicated MMA gym and putting in some serious kickboxing and submission wrestling time. Wrestling is a brilliant base but you need to have the submission and standup too.
