f"Blackzilians didn’t represent [at UFC 156]," White stated following Saturday’s press conference. "It was a bad night for them. In the first round, [Overeem] was running into a clinch. He wasn’t throwing anything. Running into a clinch, his hands were down by his knees. Yeah, it was a weird fight.

"I don’t know if he thought he could out-slick him and … I don’t know what he thought. He looked terrible. Both of them looked out of shape. Rashad did nothing but this all night (mimics catching jabs with hand). They had a bad night. They probably got to reevaluate some things in their camp."

...

"I think [Overeem] looked terrible [Saturday]. Rashad’s a great fighter, Rashad looked terrible, [too]. Yeah, I agree [Melvin Guillard wasn't good in his loss to Jamie Varner]," White said in closing. "They’ve got some work to do down there at Blackzilians. They’ve got some work to do. Vitor [looked good against Michael Bisping], but they didn’t look good."

when you stop juicing it affects your stamina and abilities so i dont see it as a surprise that overeem lost, he won the first round, he was winning the fight, he just got caught coming in, he underestimated silva and got caught, he is still and awesome fighter hats off to him losing on his shield rather than running away. Rashad looked good, he fought won of the best brazillian lightheavyweights in the world and lost, oh well, he should just take his loss and keep fighting, the real measure of a man is to come back from defeat, i am sure the blackzillians will comeback. Hell I'm still waiting for chuck to fight cain i know he could win!!!!!!!!!!!! hell I think frankie edgar beat aldo by one point honestly i viewed the fight and viewed the fight and i think he won, i think mccall won too dammitt, think edwards mighta been cheated judges need thicker glasses.
That is all!!

yeah the blackzillians looked terrible for sure. overeem looked good in the first round i thought, he had his hands too low but his head movement was great and silva wasnt landing anything. overeem was winning the clinch game too. his real mistake was i think he got to cocky and when his stamina started to diminish his head movement wasnt as fast. his lack of respect for the power of bigfoot as well as cardio problems were his downfall.

rashad just looked terrible all around i thought. i wasnt even impressed with little nog which made rashad's performance look even worse. his TD's were way off point and he looked like he didnt really want to be there.

they appear to be a group of great fighters that think they are the shit & are not humble enough or grounded enough to push each other week after week, day after day. to get better.

Rashad looked good

he fought won of the best brazillian lightheavyweights in the world and lost



Glover, Machida, Shogun.
Best Brazillian lightheavyweights in the world so he's the best Brazillian in the world? Best Brazilian? I'm confused here...

Eh, Atleast he did use affect properly and not effect..


Also, a huge contradiction saying he was winning the fight until he got caught in the last round, So obviously being off the juice didn't affect his stamina,He just got caught ??? Juice don't help a chin.

I'm glad this happened to the Blackzillian camp. They came out too cocky from jump. I really think they might of taken these 2 fights lightly and therefore just went in with no game plan. Suga looked like crap but the best was OverRated getting KTFO on his feet and just taking a beatdown.

When he said both of them looked out of shape, is he referring to Rashad and Roid or Rashad and Lil Nog? I thought Lil Nog looked pretty good.

Overeem just was being over confident and payed for it. Rashad looked out of it the hole fight. I haven't seen anything out of Blackzillians that shows me the camp is improving them as fighters. I would go as far to say a couple of the guys looked worse since joining the team.
