true mma upbringing

I was just talking to my friend about this. Who do you guys think is the best true mma fighter? Meaning, who has been brought up with all the mma skills. Not just striking or wrestling or submission.
My pick is shogun. A lot of people i've talked to say gsp.
what do you guys think?

AA???? Scratching my head still. Nobody yet has been really brought up in MMA I think not completely with wrestling, boxing, and BJJ or any other three mix or match.

g_godd can only hope to improve
i dont think this perfectly well rounded fighter is going to show up ever or at least not very often different people are beter at different things we are always going to see fighters who are far better at striking than wrestling etc also the 3 main skills require a slightly different physique in order to be dominant in it but if we aever see a gorilla strong super lean lightning quick highly flexible cardio machine in the octagon who is at the top of every disipline i will be glad i was wrong

Definitely Shogun and GSP. Jason MacDonald.

I agree, within the coming years we're going to see fighters with solid MMA backgrounds. I need to start training my 4 year old nephew. ;P

gsp... ya he has a true mma background but from the fight with serra i think he might have a problem with transitioning between the disciplines.

that makes a mma fighter great, if you can put anything at them and they take it well, even if they lose.

The love for Shogun on this site is getting gross...

What happens if he comes over and loses his first fight? Just another overrated fighter?

as for the best all around mma fighter, I'd have to go w/ GSP. The guy needs to use his GnP more tho, it's excellent
