Roman-Greco In MMA

Alot of wrestlers get into MMA, but they come in without alot of the submissions and striking skills that are usually expected of an MMA fighters. Because Roman-Greco has its own rules, which ban almost everything that makes MMA interesting, the wrestlers are basically limited to one style of fighting: the groundnpound.

What do you guys think about Roman-Greco fighters jumping into MMA?

with some extra trainging mostly in the areas of straiking and some submission they could do well. I was not allowed to wrestle in school because I could not seperate most of my submission moves which were illeagal in greco-roman styles.

Yeah, you definitely have to learn submissions and remember that pins don't matter any more. Striking is also definitely important.

I think Couture and Severn are good examples of what a wrestler can do if they go about training right.

Yes sir. Dan Henderson is another example of a Greco guy adapting and doing very well in MMA.

It's Greco-Roman wrestling and it is all upper body throws so it is only good from the clinch! Which means you can't shoot. And a shot is good to know, which most greco guys have anyway. But you need to know ground work and striking too!

From what I know, and that's not a whole lot, Roman-Greco isn't really that much upperbody work. It's alot of hips and legs. Like I said, I'm not an expert on Roman-Greco, I'm better with Judo, but that's how I see it.

Greco-Roman, Mainly since it started in Greece and was later adopted by the Romans do have alot of upper body stuff similar slightly to judo and does have some ground stuff but it mainly involves trying to pin someone which is usless in a real fight

Yeah Greco-Roman is ALL upperbody throws! You ca't trip or tackle. You have to throw them. And the throwing is the only usefull thing in a fight

so is it the Freestyle wrestling that has more option? I always get the two confused, while I know they are similiar I forget the differences between the two

Yeah Free Style is anything! Trips, throws, Tackles, foot sweeps. Way more options and most freestyle wrestlers know a lot of upperbody throws too.
But there is barely and ground work in freestyle because you are only alowwed on the ground for like 10 secs if you don't expose the opponents back.....so there are no subs
