    Franklin trains with them on occasion, but spends most of his time in Ohio.

    Also I'm almost positive Rampage doesn't train out of Legends.

    Sherk and Lesnar train out of Minnesota while Erik Paulson has a gym in California, I doubt he trains with them more than a few times a year.

    For a tiny gym in the middle of nowhere Link BJJ is amazing. Marco Alvan's a great instructor, plus, Gonzaga, Filho, Gregorian, and many great local fighters.

    I thought Filho trained at Black House.

    Obviously I'm biased, but ATT.

    Huge stable of great fighters. Tons of world class BJJ blackbelts, wrestlers, strikers, etc.

    After ATT, I would probably say Xtreme Couture, Greg Jackson, and AKA.

    I no longer think Couture is a top camp now that James Thompson has left.

    I know that James Thompson has a cult following due to his wins over Yoshida and Don Frye in PRIDE, and he has a big match with Kimbo coming up, but really, there are much many better fighters on Xtreme Couture. Also, "The Debt Collector" has never even trained at Xtreme Couture, so your comment makes no sense.

    Face it, the talent pool at Couture has been severly diminished by the loss of Thompson.

    LOL...for a minute I misread your post as being "Sean Thompkins is leaving Xtreme Couture" and was a little worried. Why would you drop a cool nickname like "the Debt Collector" for one like the "Colosssus"? Hopefully Handy will be able to keep the gym open in spite of losing his number one HW.
