Daniel Ghita to the United States To HELP Allistair with fight against Dos santos

Ghita Moves to Blackzillians to Join Alistair Overeem - Article by liverkick

In a move that might seem sudden to some, Daniel Ghita will be moving his base of operations to the United States in the near future. The move comes at the behest of Alistair Overeem, who recently inked an agreement with the "Blackzilian" camp in Florida that is run by Authentic Sports Management, led by Glenn Robinson. Now, if your question is why would Daniel Ghita move to the United States because of Alistair Overeem moving there, the answer is simple; Daniel Ghita has been a vital part of Alistair Overeem's recent training and has become such an asset that Overeem wanted to lock him up.
This comes after there were rumors that Junior Dos Santos was trying to bring Daniel Ghita into his camp to help prepare for Alistair Overeem, knowing that Ghita had worked with Overeem on his last fight and would be a good sparring partner as well. We confirmed this with Anil Dubar earlier in the week, but at that point there had been no decision yet. There is a good chance that when Overeem and his people found out about JDS trying to lure Ghita to Brazil there became an immediate need to lock down Daniel Ghita to ensure he wasn't snatched up.
Ghita's home base will be in Florida now, but he has spoken to Sport.ro and said that his focus is still on competing in Kickboxing (noted: K-1), but he will also be training with UFC fighters as well. This will probably bring about rumors of Ghita making a switch to MMA, but as we saw from Tyrone Spong, training in a camp with MMA fighters will not exactly negate your skills as a Kickboxer and Ghita should be fine training for future bouts there.

I already found this a bit of a strange move for Ghita. I mean, what's in it for him? Maybe money, but will he be a better kickboxer in the US?

But now there is an update on this news: Anil Dubar confirmed that Ghita will only be staying there for two months.

Now it makes more sense ...

@D-rop 2 months seems more logical ....

ok, thats not the same as Pat Barry to prepare Lesnar for fighting Overeem. But Ghita has a very very different style from Junior Dos Santos. And i hope he wins it because its time for Overeem to fight a little bit for something
