VIDEO | Welcome To The "Blackzilian" Camp, An Inside Look

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.

    I was just about to complain about Jake Shields leaving the scrap pack, but you know what. I’m happy to see Jake Shields mixing it up a little. He seemed like he was missing something in his game, that I’m sure a new environment will fill. This team seams pretty legit.

    No that camp as in the Gracie camp is full of overrated fighters and big headed dummies

  6. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Meathead pissed me off when he ran away from Kongo like a girl. He could have won that fight.

    I hope their bonds can carry them through this weekend. I think Rashad is the Atlas of this group. He’s carrying this group on his shoulders pretty much, the face of the Blackzillians. If he loses that could hurt this group.

    What happened to Rumble?
