White: Blackzilians didn't represent at UFC 156


The Blackzilians top two superstars were on display at UFC 156, with title shots at stake. Alistair Overeem returned from a nine-month PED suspension, and would have earned a shot at Cain Velasquez’ with a win over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Rashad Evans could have fearned a shot at Anderson Silva with a win over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Didn't happen.

“Blackzilians didn’t represent [at UFC 156],” said UFC president Dana White. “It was a bad night for them. In the first round, [Overeem] was running into a clinch. He wasn’t throwing anything. Running into a clinch, his hands were down by his knees. Yeah, it was a weird fight."

“I don’t know if he thought he could out-slick him and … I don’t know what he thought. He looked terrible. Both of them looked out of shape. Rashad did nothing but this all night (mimics catching jabs with hand). They had a bad night. They probably got to reevaluate some things in their camp.”

“[Overeem] looked terrible. Rashad’s a great fighter, Rashad looked terrible. Yeah, I agree [Melvin Guillard wasn't good in his loss to Jamie Varner],” White said in closing. “They’ve got some work to do down there at Blackzilians. They’ve got some work to do. Vitor [looked good against Michael Bisping], but they didn’t look good.”

Don't the Blackzillians have the lowest win percentage of all the notable training camps?

Shit camp. It's a Social Club for fighters. When you see the camp on TV, they look like they are having too much fun. Training aint supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be grueling
