Yah the last card I think was an aberration. Can't remember the last time I had a losing night with two out of three correct, but betting wise it was two out of two. I think I need to be wary of the Blackzillians now...haha! Upon further research they have the following records.
Miguel Torres = 0-2 in his last two, with a loss outside the ufc (he also trains in Tri-star)
Overeem = KO loss in a widely considered 'gimme' fight.
Rashad = Loss to a seemingly irrelevant LHW
Micheal Johnson = one of the best performing BLackzillians. A bad loss to Paul Sass, then Myles Jury.
Melvin Guillard = 0-2 at imperial with a KO loss
Matt Mitrione = 0-2 with a KO loss, but I'm not sure if he was at Imperial before the Kongo loss
JZ Cavalcante= 1-2 with a KO loss
Claude Patrick, Marcus Aurelio, and Villefort all lost their last fights as well
One thing I just researched is their low altitude training which does effect their conditioning. I had an instructor who mentioned about climate effecting various gyms. He may be onto something here.
- factor in the Miami lifestyle with beautiful mamas and maybe they're too busy partying and banging chicks...haha
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
