I will have the best coaching team in MMA in my corner and I am going to win this fight for my team, my country and my family.

“Cezar came down to JACO Hybrid Training Center with Vitor Belfort a while ago to train, and he really like the vibe here and all the guys, they all really liked him,” said Glenn Robinson, owner and manager of Team Blackzilians. “Cezar decided he wanted to become a Blackzilian and the team had already adopted him, so it is official – Cezar Ferreira is a Blackzilian and he’s training with us now, and getting ready for his August 3 fight. I think Cezar has unlimited potential. He is a great guy. He’s hard working, dedicated and I think he can go as far as he wants; he could be the next Vitor Belfort. Welcome to the team, Cezar, we are excited to have you with us!”
