Because they are the worst camp there is.

Could you explain why people wouldn't trash the Blackzilians? Guillard went from a contender to a mediocre LW, Rashad has lost his last 2 after only losing 1 of his first 19 fights, Overeem looked worse than ever and lost to Bigfoot... the list goes on.

OP, I had a similar mindset to you at first. I didn't want to trash them and jump on the Blackzilians hate wagon so soon just because they started losing a few fights. But it's clear that they haven't established a good rapsheet for themselves as of late.

B: "Who?"

A: "Blackzillians?"

B: "Sorry, say again?"

A: "Black-Zillians"

B: "Brazilians?"

A: "No... Black - Zill - eeee - ons"

B: "Ah... blackzillians... Dude, that name sucks!"
The actual name of the gym is Imperial Athletics. But ever since Big Foot Silva dubbed the camp name to be "Blackzilians" (because of the inhabitence of mostly black and brazilian fighters), that name kind of stuck.

I personally don't wish bad things to happen with the gym, and I hope the fighters and trainers there can make an improvement of their resumes and gameplanning stratagy. But when an MMA gym produces the results that they have, it's clear that there is something wrong. It's good to have a family type of commodity and chemistry throughout a gym, but there comes a point when a fighter has to evaluate what is best for his career. And as of right now, the blackzilians don't seem to be a.good choice.

It isn't so much that they lose a lot, it's who they lose to that's the issue.
Overeem losing to Big Foot
Rashad losing to Little Nog
Melvin Guillard losing to Joe Lauzon
Michael Johnson losing to Paul Sass
Miguel Torres losing to Marlon Moraes
Danillo Villefort losing to Nate James

In those cases they were favorites, in many cases 4-1 favorites and they choked. And while they have a talented "midcard" with Siyar, Abel, and Tyrone Sponge we aren't seeing those guys fly up the rankings

Um, because they suck! There are some talented fighters on the roster but they ALWAYS lose more than win!

Ghita and Michael Johnson both lost again on the weekend.

What is the Blackzilians losing streak at now?

Mitrione also won, but Michael Johnson losing is crazy, he's actually regressing in skills and talent.

Ah forgot about Meathead. It's funny that they need a white man to save the Blackzilians.
