By Lorenzo Luciano:
This week the “UFC Ultimate Insider” on “UFC on Fuel TV” took an insider look at the progression of the “Blackzilians”, located in Boca Raton, Florida.

The name stems from the group originally being made up of ‘Black’ and ‘Brazilian’ men.

The show demonstrates how they are a dedicated group, working together to build a team and how they are dependent on training partners for their constant improvement.

Rashad Evans speaking on the preparation for his upcoming fight against Jones states, “I know what I need to do, I know what he’s good at, and I know how to stop him.”

The groups coaching staff is made up:

Mike Van Arsdale – Head Coach

Henri Hooft – Striking Coach

Mario Sperry – jiu-Jitsu Coach

Some of the featured fighters on the tape are:

Geisas Cavalante

Danillo Villeforte

Jake Shields

Matt Mitrione

Michael Johnson

And of course it’s most famous member Rashad Evans.
