Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem posted a picture on Twitter Friday night of his dinner partner. That person was none other than Vitor Belfort, who appears to be joining the ranks of the Blackzilians with Overeem.
"Diner with my new Blackzilian teammate and old-Idol Vitor Belfort," Overeem wrote. "Welcome Vitor!"

True enough. I don't like the move for him personally but it might end up helping his wrestling and that's never a bad thing I guess.

Not a bad move for Vitor, Blackzilians are a pretty good camp.

The Blackzilians have definitely rounded up some talent. Might be a good move for Belfort. I guess we'll find out in his next fight.

As a big Vitor fan i don't wanna admit it but i feel you're right Byrd Man, he chose wrong and won't be going down the Rabbit Hole

how the hell does anyone at the camp get shit done being that close to the beach and miami???

they have a good set of UFC fighters there along with connections everywhere. don't see how that is a bad thing with the sparring partners you can train with.

All the guys in the camp are guys who've gotten by on physical attributes more than being well rounded, I just don't know how much that actually helps a guy who is in his twilight. Aside from Rashad these guys are all guys that never leave it all in the ring, I don't get it.

I guess time will tell. I'm indifferent on the move.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I don't see how this is a bad thing. It's common for fighters to move on after awhile, and the fighters who stay at the top constantly challenge themselves with new training partners. I don't see how this can be a bad thing.

Van Arsdale left. Mario Sperry is the guy in charge now. (That might be a good thing, considering he knows how to build a staff.)

I thought I heard Ernesto Hoost was teaching the striking there. But I could be wrong on that.
