Well BJJ was the way to go all those years ago.. but now it has to be Sambo or just plain old MMA

All of em are really nothing without the other, go to an MMA gym, no point in picking one art when you can practice all of them. Then out of all of them, if there's something you think you exceed in and enjoy better than others, focus on perfecting it, then iron out the kinks of the rest of your game later.

I think Sambo, Judo, and BJJ makes a fun a fighter.

I will have to go with Rampage's "whoop yo ass" style. Hell, it worked against chuck.

There isn't one best style. The best thing to do in MMA is be as well rounded as possible.

Obviously there are so many styles so I will narrow down the most popular and arguably the most effective disciplines:

Muay Thai
Sambo
BJJ
Boxing
Wrestling

Isn't Pancrase the use of a bunch of skills to beat an opponent...or something like that? (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Just pick something that suits your needs/wants.
Merforga is right. In addition, you should consider your strengths and weaknesses. Are you good on you feet, but not a great wrestler? Then start with your strengths so you don't get discouraged. Then when you have a comfortable set of tools, continue to work on the holes in your game.

Pankration is basically what MMA is today.

MMA isn't a proper style its just a mix of other styles.

Thug Jitsu is used by Yves Edwards a fierce UFC lightweight striker.

Jean Claude Van Dam has studied or still studies - Shotokan Karate(black belt), Muay Thai and Tae Kwon Do.

Steven Seagal is actually a high rank in Aikido.

Like i said there is no best style and i think arguing over which is better is stupid...they all have there ups and downs but the answer to the question is an opinionated answer and always will be.
