As the debate about the best team in all of MMA rages on in 2013, one group of fighters has really begun to accumulate much of the elite talent in the sport, particularly from their home country of Brazil. I'm talking, of course, about Black House MMA.
Founded by Ed Soares, Carlos Barreto, Jorge Guimaraes and Rogerio Camoes in November 2006, Black House MMA has become almost a synonym for excellence in mixed martial arts.
Focusing primarily on the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and the pinpoint precision striking that has turned out numerous UFC champions, Black House produces some of the most well-rounded, dangerous fighters who are always looking to finish.
With Glover Teixeira still relatively new to most fans, power ranking him and the current occupants of Black House MMA might be a good way to see just how good this guy is before he fights Rampage Jackson at UFC on FOX.
