For direct takedowns and ground control: Wrestling. Lots of amateur wrestling will help with takedowns and takedown defense.

For finishing on the ground: Jiu-Jitsu (Stadard JJJ or BJJ). On thing that wrestling enstills is a lot of bad habits that do not translate over well in a MMA scenario. In which case, Jiu-Jitsu will help a lot when it comes to finishing an opponent on the ground, or defending submission holds if you find yourself in a bad situation.

Judo also works really well.
