In highschool I wrestled purely with my right leg forward. I've also always played around with round house kicks but I stand in orthodox for them and I naturally have noticeably greater power, comfort and control using my right leg to kick. I've just gotten into mma and when I throw punches my stance doesn't feel to matter to me in power or speed but it does change the angles with my opponent postively and/or negatively depending on who it is. I'm right handed so feel I should be orthodox but because of takedown efficiency I'm leaning towards southpaw. The thing is again I know I kick harder in orthodox and I'm right handed.
Which stance do I use for MMA?(orthodox or southpaw)?

Well I've been doing both to confuse my opponents but my wrestling game is so much better than my striking i still go so southpaw most of the time and take the match to the ground let them and take them down again but I'm limiting my progression so maybe i need to work strictly on striking but still not sure of which stance to work.
