Is Cesar Gracie the best fight team in America?


John Crouch, head trainer to Benson Henderson, offered the highest praise for Team Cesar Gracie, in an interview with

“I have complete confidence in Benson," said Crouch. "We’ve never gone into a fight where I thought we were going to lose. I totally believe Ben can finish the fight. With that being said, Nate Diaz and Cesar Gracie probably believe the same thing.

"Nate deserves this shot, that camp is severely underrated. Because they talk a little bit doesn’t hide the fact that they may be the best camp in the country if not the world. Their guys are tough, they always scrap and they are good everywhere. They have heart and I think my favorite part about them is their sense of team and their sense of community within their school.

"I am a huge fan of Cesar Gracie. With that being said we’re going to win on December 8th.”

So what do you think? Is Cesar Gracie the best team in the USA? Or the world? If not, who is better?

If I had to convince someone who'd never watched mma, I'd stick on a Diaz Bros or Shogun fight.

OK...if you look at my first post in this conversation, it clearly states "in their last 5 fights."  209 Diaz then quoted me, then I quoted him again.  Yes I guess I could have restated everything each time I post, but it is assumed we are still referring to the same conversation and everyone knew that.  I see the confusion and apologize I didn't clarify.  I am aware Nick has won in the UFC.  One of the 5-6 times I've seen him fight live was when he beat Ficket live back in 2005 with Tito/Vitor headlining.

209 Diaz, I've got to take lilbrockonmychest's side for a second here. I'll insult him by the end of this post to make up for it. Anyway, yes, lilbrockonmychest could have written "this is the level with which you are dealing with most Diaz fans", but that would be way too formal for an internet forum, and considering how grotesquely illiterate half the posters on the UG are, he would have isolated 50% of his audience. The way he said it is perfect; yes, he could have used another expression and not "dealing with" to avoid the confusion, but I don't see the need as everyone can understand what he wrote, and he's grammatically and punctuationally (no need for a comma after the first "with") correct.In an unrelated story, lilbrockonmychest's girlfriend is fucking a black guy.
