Who Is The Best Wrestler In MMA

Pretty self explanatory and an argument in the GSP/Silva thread is what brought this up.

So who is the best wrestler in MMA?
Vote and discuss.

Georges St.Pierre takes it pretty easily IMO

He makes Div I wrestlers look like they have never wrestled before.

I would say GSP has used his wrestling the best so far.

Brock comes in a close second, but with his size advantage it makes his wrestling scary. Without that size advantage he wouldnt be nearly as good a wrestler. Sure he has great technique but we have only seen 5 fights from him so I think GSP takes it.

gsp is not the best pure wrestler in the sport...henderson, sonnon, coutore, brock, and lindland are ahead of him. i guess thats just my opinion though.

gsp puts everything together well, he's a great mma wrestler.

Best utilized MMA wrestling goes to GSP.

As for pure wrestling, it might have to be Brock just based on credentials.

GSP, there's no question or doubt, which is why he is rolling through this poll.
