    Matt Mittrione lost by KO
    Micheal Johnson got dominated Decision
    Melvin Gullard lost Decision
    Miguel Torres lost Decision
    Thiago Silva NC failed another drug test

    Most overrated camp IMO. Rashad Evans and Overeem are the only credible threats. Oh and my boy Siyar!

    Well, to be perfectly fair, NC for weed is bullshit, and Guillard had really close fight, and certainly his best showing in a while.

    no love for Eddie Alvarez?

    I know Vitor just lost to Jones, but he did more damage to Jones than anyone else has. Above his weight-class too.

    Overrated? They are still in the beginning stages. Sperry has only been there for a few months, so give them some time.

    It's convenient how your forgot to mention:
    Tyrone Spong's debut
    Eddie Alvarez's knockout of Patricky Pitbull
    Anthony Johnson's winning streak
    Abel Trujillo's dominant UFC debut
    Ryan Jimmo's UFC debut knockout
    Michael Johnson's prior winning streak was impressive until 155

    Good point. It`s a solid camp and they`ve had some good results and some bad ones, like every other camp.

    Wasn't it a camp spawned out of rage and hatred wanting violent revenge on Jackson MMA?

    A lot of the fighters you have on your "good" list actually are not full-time Imperial Athletics/Blackzillians etc. fighters. Blackzillians is more like "Black House" gym than a real team. Fighters come there to get good sparring in and yes some are real teammates but a lot have separate or home camps and different Head coaches as well.

    They have big names but results in losses. Reminds me of the Lolkers.

    No problem. Tyrone Sprong is there to save the camp's credability.

    Rumble was beast
    Gesias Cavalcante was dominate
    Tyrone Spong won MMA debut
    Braulio Estima won MMA debut
    Fabio Mello is on a streak
    Siyar is winning
    Ghita got screwed
    T. Silva drug test is BS

    THE REEM WILL RETURN TO CLAIM HIS TITLE

    Sound like a solid camp to me

    I agree.

    Blackzilians fighting in the UFC lose but who cares, it's not like they're the top MMA organization. It's at the smaller organization where wins really count.

    Just because Guillard and Micheal Johnson can't grapple doesn't mean it's a bad camp.

    It's a very good gym with a load of talent and some excellent coaches. Obviously everyone isn't going to win and I would imagine their winning percentage is above 500.

    Since we're on the topic can someone explain the difference between: Blackzilians, imperial athletics, and jaco hybrid? I think that Blackzilians is the name of the fight team, imperial is the management company and jaco is the name of the building where they train. I would appreciate it if someone cleared this up.
