Base is not very relevant.

It's the most overrated and overestimated aspect of MMA development.

What's relevant is what a fighter's focus is and aptitude for something in between the ages of about 16-24, on average.

No one would call Jose Aldo Jr a BJJ fighter although he didn't start training striking until he started fighting.


Junior Dos Santos was basically a wrestler until he started honing in his boxing skills with Luis Dorea.
