HW: Cain Velasquez
LHW: Tough one. Pure wrestling would probably be Phil Davis. Wrestling in mma would be Jon Jones or Rashad Evans
MW: Sonnen or Munoz (We'll find out soon)
WW: GSP
LW: Maynard

I can't really add any more than that. Sadly, I only like a few of the guys on the list but they all use wrestling effecitvely.

I'm also taking this as MMA wrestling. I think Lesnar's MMA wrestling is a little overrated, so I go with Cain there. Phil had trouble getting Nog down, Rashad hasn't used his wrestling consistently, and Jones has been tossing people around. I think Chael has better MMA wrestling than Munoz, but we will see. Edgar out-wrestled the bigger Maynard and was able to get BJ down, so to me Edgar is the obvious choice. There aren't really a lot of wrestlers that I can think of at FW, so Mendes seems like the obvious choice there...although Joe Warren is up there. Cruz out-wrestled both Faber and DJ, so I have to put him at the top there.

In terms of mma wrestling, gsp and sonnen are above all others. The way the they set and put their takedowns together is amazingly accurate. I'm not sure and I have not checked this at all, but I'd be willing to wager that both of their takedown percentage is above 70% easily.
