I've heard that wrestlers tend to be the best overall fighters in MMA...

I've also heard that many law enforcement officers would choose a judo practicioner as a partner during self defense situations.

I think it depends on your goal too. All I can say is that I will not recommend you to take BOTH! It's better to spend 10 years mastering EITHER, than to spend 5 years in each being only "semi" decent at both. A high-level wrestler would defeat a semi-high-level judoka, and a high-level judoka would defeat a semi-high-level wrestler.

The only exception is if you are not doing any form of striking, but you already are. Stick with one striking art and one grappling art.



That's just my two cents though! lol. I'm no expert.

I cannot explain in words how frustrated I get watching fighters in the cage who are grappling on their feet, but never go for body throws, hip tosses, or leg sweeps. Things I ddo and think about doing on instinct. IMO Judo includes a great many techniques that are the perfect counter to not only most grappling clinches, but also the Thai clinch(not to say other forms of grappling dont include these, I'm just not educated in those). There are also many ground position techniques which are just as useful as BJJ, however I have found there are significantly more, at least from my training, movements designed to finish off one's back, not just sweep, which is advantageous against wrestlers.

There are many aspects of wrestling that are also very important. The single and double, top control, guard passes. These are all major groups of techniques that are essential to MMA groundfighting.

As said above there are possitives to both and you should train all the major aspects in both if possible. Starting with only one, go with Judo IMO. It's groundwork focuses on fighting off the back as much as on top, and it adds a lot of versatility to your takedown ability.
I've seen some pretty good judo throws and foot sweeps used in actual MMA fights: watch GSP, JBJ, Parysian fights and you'll see them use some awesome judo at times.

You'll need both, and don't go to some shoddy judo dojo. Look around for the best school, make sure they know its mma training and you need at least two years to develop musical memory.

Most the fighters in town go to a mma gym and come to sakura for bjj, judo and Kickboxing.

jollymans has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Personally I'd do both if you want to do MMA. Look at Karo Parysian when he was in his prime , the thing with Judo from the standup clinch game is it counters a lot of the wrestling and BJJ. But for top control on the floor then wrestling is a force to be reckoned with
