1 Win and 8 losses this year!!!............

(Belfort, Rashad, Santiago, Siyar, Jimmo, Overeem, Villefort, Staring)

Anyone starting to lose faith just because the guys are fighting in that camp? I know it's the reason I didn't pick Siyar this weekend...

When I saw the thread title, I was expecting to come in and read about how the Blackzillians broke up. I am disappointed.


Anyone who want's to fight and live in nice Florida whether, should make there way to ATT.imo

I'm worried cause of Thiago Silva.....

I've looked into it, it seems like the Blackzillians wrestling coach: Mike Van Arsdale left which makes sense:
Rashad lost due to 0 successful TD's
Siyar had no TDD
Santiago got outwrestled
Jimmo got outwrestled
Staring got outwrestled
Overeem forgot what to do from the top postion
Villefort struggled to get the fight to the ground

Belfort fight was a stand up fight
Rumble hasn't fought a natural 205 wrestler

Seems to me that it is a bunch of athletes with no coaching staff to direct them...recipe for failure to be sure.

I don't understand why Thiago left ATT in the first place? Money?

I remember Thiago saying in hindsight that at ATT they werent training him hard at all.
I can understand the move considering his style. His Bjj doesnt need any more improvement and thatsATTs main focus. There arent any high level fighters his size there for him to train with. It makes sense for him to join a camp with high level strikers and wrestlers.

With that said. The top level fighters there are deteriorating at their primary skill because theres no one to challenge them in those Areas. Alistair getting cocky and underestimating bigfoot - leaving GG means hes top dog in his camp whereas before Saki could punish him in sparring. Rashad has never been a great technical wrestler,with Van arsdale gone he might as well be the wrestling teacher. And thats bad news for everyone except the sparring partners his size(Thiago/Belfort).
