Wrestling in MMA

I have recently gotten into MMA and train in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Is this enough? Since I hear that Wrestling is also very good to train in since it helps your take downs and take down defense?

If you're planning to compete in MMA and nothing else, then I suggest finding a place that teaches Submission Wrestling. Submission Wrestling takes things from BJJ, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Sambo and other grappling arts and puts it into one art. Submission Wrestling leaves out things that may not be effective in MMA/Submission Wrestling competitions, so it is geared towards sports and not self-defense.
