    I wanted to take a head to head look at the two most prominent camps for the little guys. I will edit if anyone thinks of other head to head match ups of the two.. Off the top of my head I can think of 5 fights between the two camps.

    4-2 in favor of NU.

    Aldo over Faber
    Aldo over Mendes
    Barao over Faber
    Barao over Faber

    Benavidez over Formiga
    Benavidez over Fabiano

    yep, by sub too, must've rankled. Fabiano actually gave GSP his blue belt too.

    Nova Uniao just seems like the better camp overall.

    To be fair, all of the winners were moderately favoured to win.
    It's tough to compare the two when only a couple of their guys have fought.

    NU is still the best team in the world, imo.

    I feel like that camp is good more so because of the fighters in it rather than the coaches coaching it, Kind of an iron sharpens iron type deal, I think if bigger guys started training and other guys that weren't stars so they didn't get to train with the Aldo and Baraos of the camp they wouldn't be very good at all and they wouldn't be known. So I basically feel like the camp wouldn't be very good at all without those two guys and maybe 1 or 2 other guys in the camp. I also think as a camp in a whole ,team alpha male has more quality fighters overall than nova uniao. Nova Uniao again only has those two guys so Alpha male overall would have to be a better camp IMO

    Don't dismiss the prowess of Didi & Shaolin Ribierio
    There's a reason two of the P4P best call them "Master"

    I was just answering to his saying of 'lack of quality fighters' regarding NU.

    They have a lot of guys but I can see your point. I remember Ronny Markes and Thailes Leites weren't particularly impressive, although Leites is looking better. But Barao and Aldo are lightyears ahead of them.
