There is also the difference in the rules. The no kicks/knees to a grounded opponent (fingertip is enough grounding) and no 12-6 elbows heavily favors wrestlers as they can notoriously stick to their opponent and try for single/double leg TDs from the clinch without worrying to get kneed to the head and without much worrying about elbow strikes from above.

That didn't really play a big role for CroCop, but it does play a role in overall comparison between fighting in Pride or UFC.
