yeah thats the only reason i decided to do swimming this year, was so i wasnt in offseason inbetween crosscountry and track. then about a month ago i got into MMA so i was wondeirng if i needed to change to wrestling.

i didnt really have a style at the time, i had a good stand up game a good wrestling game and defense but lacked the submissions and ground and pound knowledge to really succeed in mma not that i couldnt have learned but i descided to go down a different path
ive got good stand up, a lil wrestling (more BJJ than anything else) so i know some submissions, ive got pretty good takedown defense but depending on who i am up against i might let them take me down and get them in my guard, becuz as i said earlier thats where i am most comfortable. i am not worried about cardio, ive got that down easy (becuz of track and Xcountry). i just need to work a lil more on my stand up, being on top (mostly ground and pound) and a lil more on my defense.
