That's pretty damn cool

I did want to see this kid vs. Cole at some point in the future. I guess that won't be happening any time soon.

Yeah I thought Dustin was doing great at his camp too but if you're the top guy at your gym and you're not improving, time to move on I suppose.

Dude that blows....Tim brought him up from nothing. Either way, Dustin is one of my favs and he's got my support. Just sucks that he's leaving G.A Phone Post

Big fan, and at the end of the day as a pro you have to do what's best for you.

It's good for him to switch it up. I'm a fan of Tim and that camp as well, so I hope there was no fallout.

I figured this would happen when I heard he was training there.

Dustin's a great fighter. I can't wait until his next fight and I am glad to have him in South Florida.

Butter, 'cuz I'm on a roll!

That loss must have shaken his confidence in Credeur. Not sure I agree with this move, no disrespect to ATT intended. I just don't agree with jumping ship that soon.

JBJ was doing good at his old camp and then went to jackson's

And now look at him. A half-naked bum, crashing cars, swimming with 15 year olds, and taking all the white women.

Kinda saw this coming, he's been tweeting a lot about being there and about his training sessions.
If you're the top guy in your gym by a lot , that's the kind of thing you've gotta do... I'm sure Tim understands Phone Post

Some people just don't get it


Especially supposed knowledge people who you think would understand this sport.


You don't get anywhere being the top guy at your gym when you get to Dustin's level you need to train with people as good or better than you.

And what this tells me is that he's taking his career seriously and making a wise move. Pretty easy to grasp. Phone Post

No I get it bro. Just being from Louisiana I'm so used to Dustin representing us with Gladiators. But as you said, it's the best move for him at this point to join a more credited camp in that of ATT. I wish him the best of luck. Phone Post

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 Phone Post
