most knowledgeable (fucking title name restrictions) about?

I ask because my brother and I were talking about how somebody with experience with only a certain area of MMA (wrestling, boxing, muy thai, bJJ, etc, etc) will be biased towards that aspect.

So, all the active posters on this site:

1. What part of mma (if any) do/did you compete in?

2. What aspect of mma are you most knowledgeable in?

3. What aspect of mma do you enjoy to watch the most?

for me:

1. Wrestling, boxing, and barely enough bjj to be worth noting.

2. Wrestling.

3. Again, wrestling (Me being obviously biased is what started this whole thought process)

What about you guys?

I do train in Krav Maga. That's not something you compete in, simply a way of learning effective self defense, though I mostly do it for the fitness aspect. Most used martial art in the training for me is probably Muay Thai, at least my guess is that it sort of comes close.

And yeah, a Shogun in top form is probably the aspect of MMA I enjoy most, but I also love submissions of any kind - for me that's the most elegant way to win a fight.

I don't know much technical about anything beyond BJJ.

I train BJJ and MMA (the striking training we do is mostly boxing with some kicks), and we do a lot of stand up wrestling as well

I don't think I have a bias but I prefer muay thai/BJJ guys to boxers/wrestlers

For my BJJ though, I'm all about the wrestling... wish I'd done it in high school to be honest

I've trained in Boxing, Muay Thai, BJJ, and I wrestled in middle school and high school. I never actually competed in the first three though.

I feel I am equally knowledgeable in all aspects. Maybe slightly less in BJJ.

Of course I enjoy the stand up the most because it is most exciting. But technical ground matches like Maia vs MacDonald are just as good. Those come few and far between though.

1. Boxing, Kickboxing, Karate.

2. Striking.

3. I enjoy all aspects, but I guess initially I was drawn to all those aspects that negated effective striking, all the spoiling, clinching, wrestling, grappling and submissions/BJJ.

Wasn't too long ago that a lot of striking styles were very focused on striker vs striker, counter-striking or just hitting and running, so it's interesting watching how different fight styles drift in and out of relevance and adapt in mma.
