Of all the GOATs it seems like nost of them were wrestlers with MT and BJJ tied in second.

GSP
Hendo
Bendo
Coleman
Shamrok Bros
The Natural
Tito
Hughes
Lidell (though he never really used it)

They all started out as wrestlers or predominately use wresting in their style.

However really its hard to say their a wrestler when their really an MMA fighter
I have a theory that it comes to the fact the great majority of these fighters are Americans and wrestling is widely train in America since young age in many schools and continuing through university.
