    Linton Vassell is ready for his fight tomorrow with Liam McGeary, but his preparations have been a little different this time around.

    'Since his fight with Francis Carmont at Bellator 165 last November, Vassell’s training camp, the Blackzillians, have gone through what can best be described as a divorce. While many in the camp have chosen to remain silent about what happened, Vassell spoke exclusively to Champions.co and set the record straight.

    '“With the Blackzilians, the word is that Glenn [Robinson] didn’t pay the rent on the facility,” Vassell said. So, when I went back, it turns out we’ve been kicked out because we hadn’t paid it. There’s no Blackzilians gym at the old facility in Jacksonville now.”

    'Vassell then described how the two parties had split and where they’ve set up their new training camps....'

    This is the straightest talk I have seen about the Blackzilians situation. Good interview.

    It explains some but not really what the entire rift is about and why guys are taking sides.

    Should of called him a poor mans John Dupont... Glen would have half taken that as a compliment being compared to a person of wealth.

    Bwa ha ha
