You need to get into boxing classes, kickboxing classes, master judo and jujistu, either one or both, be a very good wrestler. You Have to have good genetics, you have to workout ALOT because you have to be very strong, and you need to be very flexible. You also have to have good pain tolerance, very good conditioning and balance, you have to be able to stay on your feet and have good cardio so you can have good endurance, and get oxygen to your muscles quickly. You also need to have a fighters mentality, and know what you are doing, and plan your next move ahead to be one step ahead of your opponent. Getting into mma is not for the faint of heart, and takes a lot of hard work and dedication, and you will suffer a lot of injuries and pain but you will have to be able to deal with those, other than that good luck with your goal of being successful at mma.

Well first off, if you're considering going anywhere with your mma then yes, you need to know a lot more than just wrestling. I'm sure it's different from club to club, however I know at my club and all the clubs in my area, you have to have at least 15 boxing classes, 15 grappling classes, and 15 striking classes before you can start taking mma classes.

yeah, you'll have to do something besides wrestle. But, wrestlers usually make good mma fighters. Go here: http://www.fight-site.com/learntofight.com.htm It may give you a little intro into the sport.
