BloodElbow's Steph Daniels once again did a must-read interview, this time with Blackzilians team owner Glenn Robinson.

Stephie Daniels: The camp has been experiencing a rough patch recently. Has there been a point where you've thought to yourself, 'S---, what am I doing here?'

Glenn Robinson: [laughs] Yeah, about two hours ago. I got a text about two hours ago that made me very sad. I can't get into what it was, but that's life, and I love what I'm doing. I got a text from Rashad last week, out of the blue, that just said, 'Hey, you're my best friend. I just wanted you to know.' That makes it all worth while.

I love all the guys. I want to see them success, and I'll do whatever I can to help them realize their goals. We've had some potholes along the way, it's true, but we are still doing well.

SD: Do you think that people are too quick to judge the team, especially considering it's only been around for a year and a half?

GR: You want to know something? I don't give a s--- what anybody thinks. Look, Michael Johnson unfortunately lost on Saturday, but Ryan LaFlare, who trained part of his camp with us, won his debut, and Matt won in 19 seconds. The week before, we had three people win at World Series of Fighting, so five out of six is not too bad.

All I care about is the guys winning. What people think about me or the team doesn't matter. All I care about is helping the guys win. The people that support us, we're very thankful and appreciative of them. You're always going to get people that don't believe in you or are critical of you. There's nothing I can do about that. I just keep marching forward, doing the best that I can to get the team to the level that it needs to be.

SD: A lot of people think that you lure the top athletes over to the Blackzilian team by offering them money to join. Is that true?

GR: Tell them to go get some proof, and then go post it. I said it a thousand times, I don't do that. If somebody needs a loan, do I help them? Sure, but I don't pay the fighters to stay here. They're free to come, free to go. We're not a prison.

I'll tell you what it is. The other teams and coaches are just jealous that I've accomplished in a little over a year, what it took them a lifetime to do. That's really what it is. I did in 18 months, what it took other people 10 years to do. I can't help it if they're slower than me.

The naysayers within the industry are just looking for reasons to poke holes. At the end of the day, don't send me a Christmas card. As long as my guys are doing good, I don't give a s--- what any one of those people think.

Read entire interview...

he's definitely got a point regarding the 5 of 6. I wish I knew what his whole camp has as a record since joining, not just the high profile guys. That would answer a lot more questions than noting the losses in the UFC alone. Not only that, progress is much more important that JUST results.

and ALL camps go through slumps. but the fickle mentality (greatly due to the low age of the core fan base) is so quick to dismiss. From suddenly GSP having a weak chin to Uriah Hall suddenly going to have a belt in a year it's comical really.

I'm sure they'll be just fine. I wonder how their recent record compares to the Caesar Gracie's camp? doesn't seem to be so much doom and gloom about them around here. Why's that? it's just starting to get popular to hate on Cesar. I'm sure the silliness will keep going though

Id be fascinated to know what he actually thinks he has done and who he is comparing his accomplishments to when he says 

The other teams and coaches are just jealous that I've accomplished in a little over a year, what it took them a lifetime to do.

WTF

Never heard if this dude till right now.

Nobody else is wondering where this guy came from?

Who is this dude, never heard of him and he suddenly has enough cash to loan to the fighters when they need it?

Sounds shady.

These other coaches and managers are just jealous that I accomplished so much so quickly. It has nothing to do with the fact that they put their blood, sweat and tears into the sport over the last ten years while I hadn't even heard of the UFC before two years ago. It has nothing to do with the fact that I offer money to their clients or fighters to come fight for my team.

It has nothing to do with the fact that I hired a PR agent away from the UFC to concentrate solely on putting out stories touting the greatness of me and my team before we proved we could even keep these guys at the same level they were before coming over. It has nothing to do with the fact that we have fallen flat on our faces and lost fight after fight on the big stage.

It has nothing to do with the fact that we play musical chairs with coaches because we have no structure or leadership because i have no clue how this business works. It's just jealousy because we are so great and have accomplished so much so quickly. Phone Post 3.0

Since when are your guys doing good? It's one of the worst camps in the history of MMA. It gives Brazilians a bad rep, they should change the name because they have a horrible track record. Most Brazilian fighters despise the camp anyway.
