MMA 3-Way: best examples of martial arts purists in MMA, Part Two

A kinda redux and kinda redo version of this week's ultra-in-depth MMA 3-Way on which MMA fighters best represent the pure essence of a traditional martial art.

By semi-popular demand, we're featuring the second half of this week's MMA 3-Way because the original version was about three years long.

To review, Dallas Winston, Connor Ruebusch and Zane Simon each select a list of fighters whom they feel best represent a specific, singular-style of martial arts in MMA. Part One pertained to boxers, kickboxers and Muay Thai stylists while Part Two centers on wrestlers, wrestle-boxers, Judokas and Sambists.

Youtube is the place to both watch the original video and to subscribe to the MMA Nation channel to signify your undying or even reluctant loyalty.
