"Camps" are brutally overrated anyway. Get yourself a good coach and prepare for fights that way. If anyone looks how guys like JDS, Anderson, Lyoto....even Sonnen train. The idea of getting a giant circlejerk room with 1100 other fighters is archaic.

Oh Melvin.

The struggling UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard kicked off a spate of bad publicity last night when he prematurely tweeted that he would be returning to Greg Jackson's MMA camp in New Mexico.

Now we find out that Guillard is also facing assault charges in New Mexico. Steven Marrocco reports:

According to Bernalillo County (N.M.) court records, Guillard currently faces five charges: two misdemeanor counts of aggravated battery, to which he pled not guilty. Three misdemeanor counts of failure to appear in court were settled. A jury trial on the assault charges is set for April 10, where he faces six months in jail for each count, in addition to fines and probation.

When it rains it pours.
And it continues to get stranger.

All of those guys are part of camps. Black House and Team Quest. Actually, every UFC, Bellator, WSOF etc. pro fighter is part of a camp. Every single one.

Training solo with a coach is all fine and dandy until you need to actually spar or roll. You know, hit and and be hit by a live, RESISTING opponent instead of playing pretend with pads that don't hit back, which any Nancy can do and feel like Anderson Silva. But if playing pretend is all you've done lately, you're going to be in for a shock once inside the cage, when the guy taking the pillow's place actually socks you one.

And if you spar or roll with guys that have no clue on how to resist someone at your level, it's called a waste of time and child-beating. Hence the concept of a camp of fighters near the same level.

You watched a few videos of black house guys hitting pads with a coach and assumed that's all they do and never spar? Seriously copter where do you get these outlandish ideas lol? There's plenty of videos of Anderson sparring with Machida, Erick Silva, the Nogs, and so on, so I guess they're all in on the whole circle jerk thing.

The closest thing to what you're saying was Fedor with his backwoods Stary Oskol camp, and even he had Alexander to spar and roll with as well as a few B-leaguers in the 2nd half of his career and a good number of world champ level Sambo grapplers throughout.

I can understand not needing a giant fratboyish camp like Blackzilians, but your idea of anyone fighting at this level while going solo, hitting pads and practicing katas with some Mr. Miyagi is pure fantasy.

Hmm I wonder how much longer the Blackzillians will stay a team, they're not doing so good over there in Florida.

If Rashad loses to Hendo I think they're done. The only two guys who have had any success under them is Vitor and Rumble.

And without TRT it'd only leave Rumble.

I hope they come to their senses if Rashad loses, but somehow bad ideas have a way of prolonging themselves. IMO it'll be a matter of slow decline with allegations of betrayal etc. for every one that leaves rather than an all out collapse so soon.

Rashad himself seems the most committed to this stupid idea, so I see him sticking it out the longest.

why are people still forgetting about Tyrone Spong? He just knocked out Remy Bonjasky and he won his first MMA fight via KO in the first round.

Because he hasn't really done anything in MMA yet. We should be mentioning Ghita too, right?
