Im wondering all this as well because I want to get into MMA fighting and im not sure what to enroll in. Thanks !

MMA is mixed matrial arts so their are tons of different techniques. A fighter in the most basic form will have usually a main standing technique and a main grappling technique. The most popular striking techniques are boxing, kickboxing, and muy thai. but that is not all that can be learned. The most popular grappling techniques are wrestling, bjj, and judo. But again, there are many more options.

Great fighters combine many techniques to become very well rounded. Its all about what you prefer and what type of fighter you want to be. Sometimes its not even what you would rather do, but what you are better at doing. Just have fun and train hard!
