    Who would win in an MMA fight between a Greco Roman wrestler and a freestyle wrestler? Seems like the Greco Roman wrestlers have done better in MMA than freestyle wrestlers i.e. Couture, Henderson, Severn---not sure if Cormier is Greco or freestyle.

    Cormier is freestyle.
    Obviously freestyle is more versatile and has more tools.
    But good boxing plus strong greco - roman is a dangerous combo, imagine George Foreman with a strong greco - roman clinch.

    I would say that sambo and catch wrestling are used more often in combat sports like MMA, but all of that is rolled up in freestyle wrestling basically. .
