Sorry if I sounded terse. Just been sleep deprived for a minute dealing with my real job and then this thing on the side, after training.
Would really love a list of all TLI affiliates as well as notations whether they are still under that umbrella or if they've left, with links/substantiation.
Also, we could really use a list of Mastermind members, past and present. With links or substantiation.
just thought I would pop in and mention there is a thread on MMA.TV (The UG) with a lengthy thread discussing this topic, and with a poster who is trying to get victims to come forward.
It is in the Training Forums, and in the Atama BJJ forum. The thread is called My Experience W Lloyd as Mastermind Member. I know once the bullshido inquisitive minds get going on this, the case will really start to take off. And oh, more Prince George's county sleuthing, like the Kung Fu guy case.
I've been watching this whole TLI thing for sometime now, mainly because i have been suspicious of Lloyd's business practices for a long time, i must have filled in my details on a mailing list or something because despite never knowingly inviting any, my email inbox is often inundated with him trying to sell me some new DVD etc.
Having seen mention of this on here, reddit and a few other places, and following it closely i found a link to http://www.lloydirvinrapeexposed.com/ which seems to be fairly concise, it has a timeline of events, and each event is a seperate link which goes into greater detail. i have nothing to do with the website i have linked, and i cannot comment on the veracity of it's contents, but if Bullshido wants to collate what has been said so far, and examine it, i think the above link would be a good place to start.
Wow that time line is great! That impotent **** wouldn't fly in 2013!
Interestingly, I tried to post the link to my facebook page and was denied do it previously being reported as spam.
Lloyd strikes again!!
Pride and UFC veteran Enson Inoue's Puredbred team cut ties with TLI with official statement.
"Martial Skill Inc. dba Purebred Jiu Jitsu Guam is no longer affiliated with Lloyd Irvin or Team Lloyd Irvin Mixed Martial Arts. It is our decision to end affiliation and commit ourselves to strengthening and expanding Purebred Jiu Jitsu and the "Purebred" label. While dissapointed with this outcome, we move forward with mutual respect.
Purebred Jiu Jitsu"
(posted on the facebook page of the Guam location)
Bloody elbow is reporting that they have been able to confirm that Alliance MMA has also cut ties with TLI from a source close to the situation.
Mike Easton has apparently got an agreement where he can train at both TLI and Alliance, so far no other fighters have been mentioned as having a similar set up.
Dave Meltzer's figure 4 online reports "A major story involving MMA and Lloyd Irvin, who until recently was the trainer of Brandon Vera and Dominick Cruz..........." further implying the split.
As of this post i could not find any official statement from Alliance from facebook or website.
As of Feb 16th Danny Ives of Ivey League MMA was still affiliated with Team LI
