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.
