Need advices concerning grappling in mma

Hi, i have a training problem and hope if you guys can share your thoughts and opinions to help me.

I'm 24 years old and very interested learning mma. My problem is that i don't know which one to choose as my main focus grappling area wrestling or bjj. So the question is which one to choose:

a)strong wrestling and basics of bjj/submission wrestling

(+)I think that i could be pretty good at wrestling because i'm quite strong(can penchpress
10x330lbs) and have told so by training partners.
(-)Too old to start wrestling?

or

b)strong bjj/submission wrestling and basics of wrestling

(+)if i'll take more interest to submissions maybe i can compete bjj/sw unlike wrestling where i'm too old to compete.
(-) I'm not sure if this b) alternative is so effective combination in mma than a)...


Training history:
(Started when i was 15)

Karate 3 years
Thaiboxing 1year
Boxing and Kickboxing both 3months
Shootfighting 1year

Weight training 8-9years


Thanks for your answers

Train BJJ and then after a while go to a wrestling take downs class or something similar.

Sakuraba may be a very skilled wrestler but he still uses the same submissions that make up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to finish off his opponents.

same as bjj, from judo, from jujitsu...

pankration has history back 648bc... so please do not think bjj is the start of submissions
