There are so many different disciplines in MMA some of them including:

Common disciplines:
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
wrestling
Judo
Karate
Kickboxing
Muay Thai
Taekwondo
Boxing

less common but still effective:
Kung fu
Sumo wrestling
Sambo wrestling

If you have to choose just two of these disciplines which one would you choose and why?
If you have to choose three of these what would be your picks and why?

So how do you mix the mixed martial arts to make a champion?
Please Discuss.

    No specific combo is better than any other. Depends on how the fighter uses what he has. Personally I do Japanese Ju Jutsu, Greco Roman, and Boxing. I spar with a muay thai and Sanshou guy in my gym constantly to make sure I have kick defense but I don't actually train kickboxing or muay thai at all.

    I respectfully disagree. There are some combos which mix this art better than others. Of course it depends on the individual but generally some of these combos make a better outcome than the others.

    For me its BJJ first...then Muay Thai...and lastly Judo

    I have never had a good shot....but trips are legit

    It largely depends on the fighter on the natural gifts he is given,his body build,and his mental attitude

    I'm short 5' 8 1/2 and stock...think Pat Barry...not really a fast guy but endless Cardio...so I'm better build as a grappler but i take my Muay Thai serious

    The holy trinity is thought to be Muay Thai as the striking art, Wrestling as the Grappling control art, and BJJ as the sub/sweep art

    Ironic that you listed the discipline that produces the most knockouts, boxing, last. Boxing is the most efficient way to knockout your opponent, and wrestling has been proven to be the best way to control your opponent and avoid submissions.

    For MMA, I'd have to go with 10th planet JJ (perfect hybrid of all types of grappling) and Muay Thai. In real life.... I wear my gi all day, every day ****

    While I don't fight for real, I have sparred with some friends and I use wrestling and BJJ. BUT! That is only cause we don't allow striking on the feet haha. One of my friends is 6'4 210 lbs and the rest of us are around 135-150 so it would be really unfair for us.

    If I had to choose a third it would be a striking discipline and it would be boxing. If you can be extremely disciplined with your hands, head movement, and footwork, I think you have given yourself a chance to win every fight that stays on the feet

    OP you missed off technical brawling the martial art matt brown created. [-(

    seriously though i would choose

    sambo and muai thai

    sambo covers grappling and submissions in 1, including takedowns and muai thai offers the most effective form of striking., this way you would have all bases covered like khabib . choosing any other 2 martial arts and you would have a hole somewhere

    it could be argued that there are more KOs in muai thai than boxing.

    There is no first or last in my list . It is just a list. funny you mentioned Boxing since for writing the op I referred to Wikipedia on this page:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_martial_arts
    and if you go there under Common Disciplines there is no mentioning of Boxing( Ironic ha?) but I added Boxing because it is one of the most important aspects of MMA. Although Muay Thai and Kickboxing and to a degree Karate utilizes the boxing also.

    I did not choose any combo or discipline over another in my OP. None what so ever.

    Personally I will choose Sambo and Muay Thai if I choose two and add boxing if it is three.

    LOL.
    How do you know that when a guy KO'd his opponent with a punch, it was precisely and/or just boxing training that made that punch and not kick-boxing or muay thai???

    For all we know, it is the latter two that prepare you better for the whole process of succeeding with a KO in MMA, because of how they teach you to setup your stance against your opponent, against your opponent's punches and kicks etc. in an MMA fight context.

    The boxing stance is already one significant element that does not work in MMA and is totally wrong. If a fighter was able to land a KO after e.g. stuffing a kick, you know it's been either kick-boxing or muay thai that taught him how to respond to that and counter successfully and to set-up an attack yourself in the first place, and then punch - or kick - accordingly.

    Kick-boxing and muay thai ARE the two most efficient ways to KO your opponent.

    Isn't Sambo really a combination of several different disciplines, just like MMA is?
