I may be wrong but it seems like mma fans in general have a strong bjj bias. Not only that, but mma fans seem to want to train in bjj over say wrestling. It's understandable because a person who starts bjj at say age 20 can become a high level bjj practioner. The same cannot be said for wrestling, if you don't start young you will never be any good.
Not only that but mma fans seem to always favor the Brazilian bjj practioners over the American wrestlers. It kind of pisses me off. I don't know though, tell me if I'm wrong about this.
I've been training in both recently, and I personally prefer BJJ, however I think it's down to personal preference and what your gym offers. I'm sure not every gym will have a wrestling expert, my gym offers the mixture, so I'm trying to be more variable, and learn both.
I prefer BJJ, but really enjoy the wrestling side. However, to me, it only appears to be U.S fighters who use wrestling. So could it be because wrestling is a high school sport in the US, and isn't as mainstream elsewhere?
And are you sure you're not bringing nationalism into this, I mean. If the guy who wrestles and is American, and the BJJ practitioner is, say..Canadian. Are you being biased towards the American because you're American (Assuming you're American, of course)Fans will support who they believe is the better fighter, if they enjoy BJJ, they're gonna root for the guy with the BJJ.
