MMA Blackzilian Team Getting FUEL TV Profile
FUEL TV is profiling the Florida-based Blackzilians team in its show on MMA camps. The show, Training Day: The Blackzilians, airs on Wednesday at 11 PM ET on FUEL.
The show will take a look at the camp, which includes Rashad Evans, Alistair Overeem, Vitor Belfort and Michael Johnson as well as coaches Mario Sperry, Henri Hooft and Babak Nejadmoghaddam.
Johnson said of the team name in a preview, “We were all siting around, like me, him, and Rashad Evans and we looked at the mat. At one point it was just half blacks and half Brazilians. So you know, nothing real racial, you know? We said why not call the team the Blackzilians?”
