by Mike Whitman | source: sherdog.com

American Top Team officials Wednesday announced that Dustin Poirier and Nick Newell have both set up shop in Coconut Creek, Fla.

“I’m really excited to be at a gym like American Top Team and see where working with such a talented group of guys can take me in my career,” said Poirier. “All the coaches here are world class, and I can’t wait to work with them for a full fight camp. I came a long way from the beginning of my career working at a small gym, and I’m looking forward to taking the next step.”

Newell, 26, has yet to taste defeat as a professional, earning seven of his eight career victories by either knockout or submission. “Notorious” will now split time between ATT and Fighting Arts Academy in Springfield, Mass.

Just said on the MMA Hour that he and Tim are still tight, he's actually giving the live interview while at Tim's gym, he and Tim just decided that it was better for him to be surrounded by more top level guys in Coconut Creek than he can find in Louisiana . Says he's moving to FL full time

I agree with you. I think it's easy for one to blame others for their shortcomings. With that said, ATT is a great gym and I'm sure they will bring Dustin along nicely. Shitty deal for Tim. I wonder what happened there.
