    Mark Bailey: Sambo Bullshido?

    A friend brought this guy to my attention today. I have asked around my contacts on all sides of the sambo political fences and nobody knows him or his coach. His website is ringing my BS detector big time. Anyone know who this guy is? His other credentials seem very dubious as well.

    Did you check out this thread about him yet? It's pretty entertaining.

    So apparently the guy trained under Bas Rutten, and under a lot of other masters who could be anyone, really. He could easily be lying.

    None of his references pan out anywhere.

    The previous thread ends with pretty much everyone laughing and not getting a response from this guy.

    I'm going to take the serious road (for once):

    First on the opening page you can see this gif:
    http://www.worldshootfighters.com/im...logo_mid_2.jpg

    Please note the "inc" on the end of that.

    For those who are not aware, you cannot just claim a corporation.
    You have to file it in a specific state. Then you have to file reports and handle your taxes in a very specific manner. This goes for even small s-type corporations. The state government in turn has to also know the name of your business. There's alot of friggin paperwork involved.

    Thankfully, most states have a handy dandy search function you can use to verify a legit business.

    http://corp.sos.state.ga.us/corp/sos...=shootfighting

    Please note it says "No Records were found for the search criteria 'shootfighting' on 4/13/2007 5:25:09 PM"

    So...

    I also found this:
    http://www.worldshootfighters.com/Du...%2028,2007.htm

    I hope to god that link works. He's basically having an 'event'. Anyone wanna bet he's not got any insurance or payouts? You have to PAY to enter the tournament. Probably unsanctioned to boot though I don't know much about how that stuff works. If it's even real. One way to verify would be to call the school directly and find out if it's really happening.

    His map directions were kind enough to provide info:
    Duluth High School:
    770-476-5206
    3737 Brock Rd
    Duluth, GA 30096, US

    A quick check of:
    http://www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/Duluth...ar/Monthly.htm

    renders no information about a special MMA tournament.
    Here's the email for their atheletic director: denny_lytle@gwinnett.k12.ga.us
    And their principle: pat_blenke@gwinnett.k12.ga.us

    One of those two should know.
    More coming.....
