December 20, Deerfield Beach, Florida
Fighters Only Magazine visited sunny South Florida on Wednesday.Specifically, the JACO Hybrid Training Center in Delray Beach. The reason? To create a piece of MMA history with the sport's "Super Team"otherwise known as the Blackzilians. Upon it's release, the issue will depict the largest team photo shoot for an MMA Magazine ever!
Blackzilians pioneers Jorge Santiago, Danillo and Yuri Villefort, Rashad Evans, Anthony Johnson and others marveled at the photographer's proofs which put the team's growth and success into full perspective. The camp clearly has a "who's who" roster, but how is it that so many fighters at this level, in a sport where individual performance parallels success, are able to live and work together so
effectively? Glenn Robinson, founder of Authentic Sports Management and owner of the JACO Hybrid Training Center offered a possible answer;
"This is a team and a place like no other. Nothing similar has preceded it, and nothing similar will ever succeed it. Everyone in this photo has been hand-selected. Not by me, added Robinson, but by their peers. Each new member of the Blackzilians is both accepted and judged by the team's existing members. If a guy is here, there's a good reason. Good character is equally attractive to us as a good skill-set. We're getting better every day, stronger every day. We've built something truly great...a brotherhood that will be around for years to come in this sport. We appreciate the interest from Fighters Only and hope that this photo will become a piece of history."
