Anthony Johnson is scheduled to compete against Andrei Arlovski this weekend at the World Series of Fighting, at heavyweight. Johnson has previously competed as low as welterweight. Johnson, a member of Florida's 'The Blackzilians', recently spoke to Damon Martin of B/R, and defended his team, which recently has been criticized after losing some high profile bouts.

"In this sport, you're going to have your losses. That's just the name of the sport, nobody can stay on top forever," Johnson told Bleacher Report. "Even though we've had our losses, the team still trains hard and we still do our best and that's all that matters. We don't care about what everybody says. We know people are going to talk—let them talk, and we just keep it moving. You win some, you lose some; it's all about can you bounce back."

"The world is built around being negative whenever something goes wrong. We're not negative on each other," said Johnson. "If one person loses, we all lose. We don't see it as 'oh, that guy lost'—no, we see it as we all lost. It's a team thing, a family thing. No matter what, though, we keep pushing.

"We don't care about what anybody has to say."

Something very wrong is going on in that camp. I dont know if its the trainers or all the individual egos that limits the intensity of the training.

I would love to see the winner of this one back in the UFC.

Unless AJ looks incredible in this fight I think he should go back down to 205 or maybe even 185lbs.

It will be interesting to see if AJ can break the streak and finally get a win for The Blackzillians. The last Blackzillian that won was Belfort, right? Phone Post

"We don't care what anybody says" 

 

Seems like a collection of guys who refuse to take any advice and think they have all the answers because people have criticized them and they get butthurt

When i think of this camp and all of the elite lvl of fighters involved, i worry more about the level of coaching than anything else. Is there a father figure so to speak in this camp as far as training? Is there a leader? You have an unbelievable amount of talent at this camp, but without a mickey, you aint worth shit.
