There has been quite a few threads bout this already I think, so you might want to just look at those.

If you mean the one single discipline thats most effective by itself, it's tough to argue anything but wrestling, since it gives you the most control over the fights location and tempo.

Well you tend to get wrestlers or BJJ guys who take up either boxing or Muay Thai for the striking.

Nonetheless, even a wrestler with boxing ability (ala Frankie Edgar) MUST know BJJ defence at a high level at the very least.

the child who is busy now learning bjj,wrestling and MT will be a monster.

i also think its worth mentioning that some of the guys who know already hybrid arts such as sambo and pancrase have dominated.

Considering the scoring system, weight cutting ability and general relevance it has to be wrestling but it goes without saying that you can't just be a wrestler anymore.

Good point! Early on I would have said BJJ, but now I'd have to say that it's wrestling...
