Ok, I am getting a little bored of the topics here lately so I thought I would make something pointless but possibly fun.

You own a huge gym and are starting your own fight camp. Pick your location, fighters (20 max), trainers (3), ect. and say why.

Location- Chicago, IL

Fighters
HW- Shawn Carwin
Jeff Monsoon
Frank Mir
LHW- Rashad Evans (trying not to pick champs but to tempting)
MW- Demian Maia
Kendal Grove
Dan Henderson
Cung Lee
WW- Rory Markham
Marcus Davis
Anthony Johnson
Jake Sheilds
Thiago Alves
LW- Gray Maynard
Philipe Nover
Kenny Florian
Shinya Aoki
FW- Jeff Curan
Kid Yamoto

Trainers
Greg Jackson (Striking)
Eddie Bravo (BJJ)
John Hackleman (Cardio)

Would be a great camp as I think I have a good balance in strikers, BJJ guys, and wrestlers so each guy has someone to simulate their fights with. My coaches are prob the obvious picks. I think the future of MMA will almost require the rubber guard to reach top level.

Primarily a BJJ camp, but with a lot of well rounded fighters as well. A lot of fighters and top coaches that can make significant strides in creating well rounded fighters with an elite submission game.
