fighter's credentials before starting MMA

who do you guys think came into MMA with the best: striking, wrestling, and submission credentials?


striking: Mark Hunt 2001 K1 world champ (semmy schilts doesnt count since he left mma for k1 not the other way around)

Wrestling: matt linland olympic silver medalist (until kurt angle makes the transition anyway)

Submissions: ricardo arona he is undefeated in ADCC and won an open weight tournament as well as a 92kg tournament jeff monson and dean lister are definately up there as well
