It seems like you're on the right track. Roll around with the best guys there.

When you drill, focus on your shot into a double leg and a single leg. You won't use many other wrestling takedowns in MMA.

You will fall into a clinch in MMA, but I've yet to see any wrestlers hit a fireman's carry in the UFC. Focus on your shot as much as you can. Be explosive with it. That will serve you well.

Also practice defending the shot with the same intensity. Learn to sprawl. Learn to sprawl. Learn to sprawl.

And then work on your shot and drill some sprawling...
