Wrestling is the only martial art where the opponent dosnt get finished, it should be used for takedowns, takedown defense and grappling en route to a stoppage. Not just to get top position and stall for a UD.

Rules are rules though and wrestling on its own wins a MMA fight so I cant really argue with Fitch/Sonnen/Askeren and the like.
