What camp is currently the best.

Based on recent and current success, which MMA camp do you think is the best out there? In UFC at least, I think you have to give the nod to MFS -- three recent world champions, all of whom are still top contenders. But that might all soon change, now that the Pride guys are coming...any thoughts?
Also, even if they're not the best, which camp is your favourite?

I'd have to say Team Quest. My favorite would be Chute Boxe and ATT and my least favorite would be MFS

I would say there are right now four top teams or camps. As mentioned Chute Box, BTT, MFS, and Team Quest followed by the Gracie camp, Hammerhouse, Team Punishment, Lions Den there are probably more but you get the idea. I would have to say constantly shifting from #1 and #2 is Team Quest and Chute Box....Team Quest has guys like Lindland, Hendo, Sokky and at one time had Randy Couture I believe. Team Chute box has Shogun, Wandy, and other guys that escape me right now. Team Quest has guys that are constantly on top or working to there while Chute box has been on top for awhile. BTT fans are probably going to tear me apart for not mentioning Big Nog and Sliva but that is just it who else do they have? The rest I listed have fallen down in recent years and I don't consider the top of the food chain but maybe Rampage can turn it around for Team Punishment.

Cool Topic Van.

In this order
1. Chute Boxe
Gonzaga - #1 contender for UFC title and has a very good chacne at beating Randy
Thiago Silva - Big time Prospect in the UFC
Ninja - Fighting in smaller promotions but as he gets more comfortable at 185 he will be a force
Evan Tanner- Started training with Chute Boxe USA has a chance to be dominate in UFC if he puts it all together
Cyborg - Belongs in the UFC if Jardine and Griffen are in the UFC he should be
Wandy - Probably going to be a part of the highest grossing PPV in UFC history worldwide when he faces Chuck
Shogun - #1 LHW in the world according to basically every website.

2 Team Quest
Hendo - Champion in 2 divisons a little overrated at LHW he is 2-2 but is a great fighter
Sokky - Perhaps the most promsing LHW in the world but needs to keep his mouth shut
Lindland - Boring as shit and overrated but still a top 5 MW
Herman - Very good fighter should be a force in the UFC title contention by 2009
Leben - A loss away from WEC but very entertaining

3. BTT
Big Nog - 2nd only to Fedor Ufc debuting is going to be impressive against Heath
Lil Nog - Probably isn't going to fight for the UFC for a while while he's training for the Pan am but when he comes back will be a force
Arona - Should be in UFC but if Dana doesn't sign him he would be a huge add to Bodog or Elite XC
Filho - I hate this guy so im not going to say anythin postive but he's a bitch for going to WEC
Bustamante - In smaller orgs i believe trying to make a comeback has a chance back in the day he was sick.

4.MFS aint as strong as they used to be but are still a top team
5.ATT is a pretty good up coming team

Worst Team
Hammerhouse without a doubt

Is there even a Lion's Den anymore? The IFL team doesn't count, does it?

The reason I gave it to MFS was based on recent titles, not ability. Chute Box has Wandy and Shogun, but Wandy's been knocked out twice in a row and lost his title. Shogun's going on two years since the GP win. But I'm definiotely taking nothing away from the fighters themselves.

And yeah, Team Quest still kicks ass. So does BTT. And Hammerhouse does indeed blow.

I forgot about Lions Den and Team Punishment. Lions Den is kinda empty now but they get honorable mention because of the old days
Team punishment seems like it'll always be a middle of the road team they have one or two top ten guys in their weight class but they are very weak after that.

MFS hasn't been doing to good lately. Hughes got messed up, Syliva got meesed up, Pulver got messed up. But i see your point a year ago i would've put MFS at the top but not anymore.

perfect break down...couldnt of said it better.

if zelg improves id say team cc or red devil when aleks was in there...but theyre not really 'camps' and dont have as many people as the others do...theyre fighters are just really potent

Some of my Fav fighters (no order)
1) The Truth
2) The Prodigy
3) Crocop
4) The Monster
5) Mark Hunt
