Wasn't that impressed with Rumble beating AA. They both looked like crap. Rumble throwing looping screamers all night. AA not able to capitalize on the big openings he left. Then Rumble went into hang on wrestler mode for the rest of the fight.

I think Blackzillians have a decent set of fighters. Good strikers. Experienced guys. Probably some good sparring. Problem is they are all idiots and have little guidance of an actual coach or level headed people.

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.
Rashad probably doesn't wanna admit failure, and realize Bones and Greg were right. He talked a lot about them before the Bones fight.

He'll have to face the facts if he loses though, his only loss under Jackson was to Machida back when no one knew how to fight him, he won the title, knocked out Chuck, got another title shot under them. He would have never lost to Diet Nog with Greg in his corner, and he'll be on a three fight skid if he can't beat Hendo.

Rashad basically needs to wrestle fock anyone he can. He thinks he is a decent striker, and he isn't.

I'm worried about this Hendo fight. It has a good chance of being crappy. With Rashad laying on him for 3 rounds. He can't afford a loss, and standing even for 1 minute with Hendo is stupid.

It is amazing how Hendo was one of the most entertaining guys for a stretch, Feijao, Fedor, Shogun....then they give him guys like Machida and Rashad who can only make his fights into crap. THe man is 42 years old, if he isn't going to fight for the title, give him fun matchups.

I'm glad to here this I feel Guillard was at his best with Jackson's and the blackzilians really haven't seemed to be having much success. I think the blackzilians have a very laid back kinda gym which is enjoyable and certain fighters train better under these kind of circumstances but Guillard I think is the kind of fighter who needs to be told what to do in training for fights.

Sorry to disappoint you but the OP needs to be updated. Melvin is not back at Jackson's they said he is not welcome there.

Interesting. I wonder what exactly Melvin does now.
That had to be embarrassing for him, to announce his return on twitter and then be shot down like that.

Not sure if this was already mentioned but Jackson's camp denied Guillard from coming back. Something about him having like 5 charges against him.

EDIT:
Quote:
"He's not allowed back here," said the source, who asked for anonymity given the sensitive nature of the talks and the team's history with the fighter.

Guillard was unreachable for comment, and his last known management firm, Authentic Sports Management, refused to confirm whether he is still a client.

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.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Talk about a guy who can't get himself together.

Melvin needs to go live in Brazil for like 4 years and learn some F****** BJJ. If never seen a fighter consistently get beaten by the same technique. LEARN NOT TO GET RNC MELVIN!
