No problem, you should just call the MMA gym and ask for information. Duke runs an amazing gym and guys like Pat Perry, Anthony Pettis and Danny Downes.

Damn, I just noticed it is in North Milwaukee and that is a half hour away from my house so I have no clue how I would get there and back Do you think you could look for some good gyms within like 15 minutes of Nashotah, Wisconsin? Ones that teach Muay Thai, BJJ, and Wrestling?

EDIT:
I found this one which is a bit closer but it doesn't have Muay Thai: http://www.trainatwmma.com/
Is kickboxing related to Muay Thai and would it be a good alternative?

Wrestling is nothing like BJJ, you need both, trust me. Muay Thai, Wrestling and BJJ will have you nicely well rounded.
Practice them all and use what works and throw away what doesn't work. It's the way martial arts are going these days. As an example, one month ago, most MMA instructors would tell you not to waste time on front kicks, but Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida have both KOed guys with them - keep an open mind.
