Rumble Opens Up On Blackzillian Rumors


There have been rumors, strongly denied by founder Glenn Robinson, that the Blackzilians are shutting down.

“I’m really only staying in MMA for Anthony [Johnson],” said Robinson last month. “He’s like a son to me, and I would never leave before he’s done fighting.”

Johnson spoke with MMAjunkie‘s Steven Marrocco backstage at UFC 206 in Toronto.

“Whatever you guys are seeing in the media, and the word on the street, some of it could be true, some of it could be lie, but somewhere in the middle is the truth,” said Johnson. “I’ll say that, and I’ll never not be a Blackzilian.”

Robinson is currently working through a reorganization of his main company, Iron Bridge Tools.

“I’ve got my own bills, bro,” commented Johnson. “That stuff is up to Glenn. Glenn and I are close, but I don’t get into his financial business or personal business.”

“We’ll do our thing. Either way, I’m fine. Even if the team just completely exploded and got destroyed and was never around, I’m fine. I have my guys. I have my training partners. I have the money to keep going, so I’m good.”

Johnson said the core members of the team have no intention of going elsewhere, come what may.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
