A little about me, I've been boxing for about 12 years so my hands are pretty good, I'm in awesome shape (good cardio, explosive, etc) and I just started doing jujitsu but I'm catching on quick.
Take the best of both - practice single and double legs, ,reversals and overall ground control in wrestling, but don't waste any energy on turning the guy over or "pins" cause they're not worth alot in MMA...big negative on Judo is how much they rely on the gi, so try to train some no-gi judo...I'm not an expert but just my 2 cents in training in both, good luck and have fun.
