What kind of athlete is best is best suited to be an MMA fighter?

Of all the other sports out there, what kind of fully conditioned athlete of their respective sport, do you think, is best suited to become an MMA fighter?

I think I would have to say hands down a male gymnast, only the males though. Women do not do the incredible strength exercises the guys do. Those holds on the rings are just wow, (iron cross, inverted iron cross, etc..) They pretty much have all the physical assets for being a great fighter. Not to mention their flexibility would be such an asset to defending submissions and their balance to defending take downs.
