I would say matt hughes has the best wrestling tec. But thats just my opinion
I wouyld agree he is great but as for one person to mimic I am not sure I would take huges and Gracie and kinda combine them and I think you would have a very very potent grappling style.

What about BJ's grappling skills? Hughes has great takedowns but so do other former wrestlers like Diego Sanchez, Sean SHerk, Josh Koshcheck, Rashad Evans, etc.

Hughes and all those wrestlers have awesome takedowns and control so they would be great if your looking for ground and pound. Fedor would probably be best if you were looking for ground and pound though.

If your looking to submit people try Nog or Yoshida from PRIDE both excelent submission artist.

I love Sean Sherk's wrestling, but I think Hughes is the best in UFC.

Nog's gotta be the best grappler in Pride. He's a savage.

BJ's got the best submissions by far. Regardless of league and weightclass, that dude has the best choke in the business.

All great choices. When it come down to great pure wrestling ability, I would say that some of the best names that come to mind would be...

Couture
Coleman
Lindland
Randleman
Severn
Kerr
Hughes
Sherk

When it comes to bjj, judo and other sub guys...

Nogueira
Shamrock
Sakuraba
Sperry
Gracies (take your pick)
Parisyan
Penn
Rodriguez (before he went down hill)

In my opinion, Fedor falls more in the middle. He can grapple, pound and sub just about anyone. But maybe I am a little biased there. :D

There are a lot of other great grapplers and submission fighters out there. These are just the ones that popped into my head at the moment.

I think doublelegtakedown mentioned diego sanchez, but I would stay away from anyone that had that much trouble applying a choke.

I'm looking for someone to mimick... who do you consider the most effective grappler in MMA these days? I would like to study 1 fighters technique.
I just realized that this was the question. If I had to pick one guy today, it would probably be Hughes, just because he's so fundamentally sound. Nog and Fedor are also great picks.

Rashad Evans??Josh Koshcheck?? ....they dont come near top 20 for grappling. Josh Koshcheck has been submitted and put in dangerous submissions with his grappling.Rashad Evans he takes the his opponent down and doesnt do much.His last fight with Sam H Rashad was about to tap.

In my opinion Big Nog and Fedor are some of the best in MMA.
Matt hughes has improved big time.

Yeah, Em's right with this one. Koshcheck has sloppy submissions and Evans is good, but not particularly dominant.

If we're looking at slams, which is all that Rashad's got, you have to give it Rampage. As for Koshcheck, how did he come up?

Frank Shamrock!

If u want to mimick someones grappling style Frank Shamrock is the guy. Don't get me wrong Noguiera and Fedor are also great picks but Frank is a good teacher and he's one of the best grapplers out there to this day. He is a very smart fighter and I think u can pick a lot of stuff from him. There is a DVD u can check out called Frank Shamrock MMA Training Seminar, u can get it at almost any major dvd store.

Any one got some clips of Frank? I have heard of him never actually seen him fight... And when he and Ken retire they should both go to the WWE as a tag team... AFTER they are fully done with thier MMA carears.

I have to agree with you here, Frank is a very intense grappler and has excellent control/submissions. But I think Cotoure is the best all around grappler, he is so good at disarming his opposition and keeping them where he wants them. combine those two and WOW
