After a rough stretch of nothing but suck the blackzillians hire some real coaches.

The Blackzillians, the south Florida training home of Rashad Evans, Alistair Overeem, Anthony Johnson, Matt Mitrione and other top fighters, made a major move to improve their results. They hired Kenny Monday, an Olympic gold medalist in wrestling, boxing coach Pedro Diaz, and Guillermo Rigondeaux, a two-time Olympic gold medalist boxer, joined the team.

Monday won gold in 1988 and silver in 1992 as a freestyle wrestler. He had one MMA fight in 1997, but mostly has focused on working with wrestlers working towards the Olympics. Diaz has worked with Miguel Cotto in the past.

Perhaps a victory is in the camps future? Mitrione should at least handle that bum he's fighting.
