I think Delagrotte is the best MT/Kickboxing coach in MMA right now. The emphasis he places on footworks and angles is amazing. Guys look completely different under his tutelage than anyone else, and even though some of their combos might be lacking their footwork opens up holes you only need to put a shot or two through in order to capitalize. I also love how he emphasizes the low and middle kicks.

You gotta give it up to Greg Jackson for the gameplans, though. I mean the guy has a way of seeing holes I could only ever dream of. It seems so obvious after the fact, but before it happens it is a thing you wouldn't think of in a million years. Supposedly he spends HOURS every day watching footage.

Wrestling right now seems to be a toss up. I haven't been entirely impressed with any camps lately. I think Quest is always going to be considered, but they've really fallen off the wagon as of late. I honestly have to give the nod to Arizona Combat Sports, and not necessarily for any wrestling trainer, but for the guys they've been putting into the game. Dolloway has fantastic wrestling, as does Ryan Bader, and soon everyone will see Aaron Simpson's wrestling. Not to mention the way Varner took down Cerrone at will. Although I do admit that the best wrestler in MMA right now appears to be Georges St. Pierre.

Honestly if I was fighting in the UFC I would go to Por.Pramuk Gym. A good friend and training partner is in thailand at Fairtex right now, and I'm deciding between there and Por.Pramuk Gym. Those guys kill people lol.
