Mixed martial arts (MMA) is filled with talented wrestlers. Most consider the discipline to be the most dominant -- and likely the most important -- in the sport today.

And as it continues to grow, more and more high-level wrestlers continue to filter in.

Decorated names like Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen, Daniel Cormier, Phil Davis and Johny Hendricks come to mind, as well as current and former champions such as Georges St. Pierre, Ben Henderson, Tito Ortiz and Randy Couture.

On a recent edition of ESPN's "MMA Live Extra," host Prim Siripipat along with analysts Chuck Mindenhall and T.R. Foley broke down who they believe are the top-5 wrestlers currently competing in MMA.
