Moist Gracie -
IGOTBELCHED - 
BigWilliam - There are people with better credentials than Cormier. Forum favorite ben asrken for one and Kamal Shalarous for another.

I hope your joking neither kamal or askren have credentials near cormier, kamal isn't even a decent international wrestler.
In all fairness Askren did better collegiately, while Cormier was better on the world level. Collegiate style translates a bit better into MMA imo.

However, I'm arguing that Cormier has the widest array of skills in MMA. He can do it all, and makes it look effortlessly. He was snapping Barnett down and moving him like a ragdoll.
 
One fight out of a plethora of highly skilled wrestling displays does not constitute the title of best wrestler in mma. Phone Post

Credit to Cormier for not getting put in the spot yet, but we don't know how his 'desperation' wrestling will look.

His chin looked solid vs Barnett, but if he fights at HW, he's going to get rocked at some point. I'm not an Askren fan, but Askren has been able to clinch when he's been in trouble.

I'm guessing that any opponent Cormier gets is going to practice jabbing him and keeping distance. TDD is huge, but fighters like JDS are pretty good about controlling distance as well. Cormier may still be able to hit he TD, but it's going to be intrinsically harder than scooping up Barnett after a failed TD...

 Cole Konrad is another wrestler turned MMAer who has underrated wrestling, too bad people over look him because he looks more like rulon gardner (back in 2000 not now lol) then brock lesnar physique wise.

I don't think stats tell you the whole story, though. Although GSP may have the most effective double leg, he's far and wide not the best all-around wrestler in MMA.

DC is going to prove it by throwing Jones feet over head.
