There's no doubt that wrestlers have an advantage over other beginners in MMA. If a random Joe and a high school or college wrestler sign up for BJJ or mma classes on the same day (both not knowing anything), the wrestler is gonna know his way around the mat and seem a lot more comfortable than the other guy. I wish I had wrestled in high school.
