Yeah but look at how many of those guys are top contenders in the same weight class. Jackson just wants to be coach of the year is all. I bet non of those guys with the exception of Jones and GSP are getting the full attention they need. Glad Marquardt left Jacksons. Dean of Mean got his own camp now yeah?

I remember Rashad saying in an interview he was gonna go train at Jardine's gym but when he fought Rockhold a few weeks ago both Jackson and Winklejohn were in his corner.

I would also like to know this?

In all the videos I've seen of black zillions the only white guy I've seen is Van Arsdale.

The camp is actually called Imperial Athletics, it was created by some guys from ATT like Santiago and Bigfoot and got big once Rashad came, then he brought Johnson with him and now Guillard and Rumble are there. I'm sure they have some white guys but the prominent fighters are either black or Brazilian, hence the name.

Guillard isn't mentally stable. He hasn't really got a clue what he's doing.

He has all that natural talent and athleticism, but won't ever be able to reach his full potential.

Making amateur mistakes like underestimating opponents (Joe Lauzon) after 50 career fights probably means he's never going to get near a championship belt again. If you're still making fundamental mistakes after such an array of fights, then there is no hope.

Ahhh, right, gotcha.

That makes sense somewhat. So Blackzillians is a nickname rather than an official gym name.

Training stagnation isn't a good thing in this sport. GSP and Andy train with guys from a lot of different camps. You are going to only get better at whatever philosophy or style your current coaches and partners have.

That maybe the case but they have never quit their home gym to do it. They train with outside gyms as well as, not instead of their own.

I don't agree with this. Jardine and Arlovski have had roughh streaks lately and Jackson still gave them their full support. Don't know about Jardine's camp, Jackson was with him in the Ruckhold fight.
