The weigh-ins are at 2pm today. I'll be there. When I get back I'll let everyone know if Layn was there.
I just got back. There was no one resembling him there, and I never heard his name called. It was a bit disorganized, but the promoter called out all the names and he was not called. I'll still look for him tomorrow as I may have missed him.
I started a thread in Texas...from the Dallas/Fort Worth/Mesquite area. I have more info. that I'll post tonight...about his classes at the TKD school,etc.
He did not fight at the Sept 7th King of Kombat show in Austin, nor did I see him backstage at the event.
Sdave, both Matt and Nick won. Matt by a triangle and Nick by stoppage. Nick really beat up his guy bad before it was stopped. IMO it was stopped way too late.
How can you be an MMA Champion if you've never fought? This Layn Von Erich guy is just another example of how easy it is for anyone off the street to do the Texas MMA VIP circuit using an alias via false accomplishments and credentials.
well I guess that settles that.. a fraud.
I hope someone informs the Chang Lee's TKD Center that they should get a better/new MMA instructor.
So, is this Dr. Madhands the actual Layn Von Erich. What's his real name Dr. Madhands? One post in support...what happened to ya?

I know Layn, he used to date my sister. And to tell you the truth I don't know who has started all this stuff but he has not fought for the ufc or kotc. He is just starting his career. He travels alot to train at different gyms here in texas but I havent talked to him in a couple of months. His back ground is mt and jkd and japanese jiu jitsu but I know for a fact he doesnt know judo or any other desciplines! If he is instructing believe me he's is well qualified. as for his record i think he's like 3-0-0. but thats about the extint of it. As for his last name he isnt related to the von erichs he just uses the name to push his career. That was a good business move if i say so ?
I laughed when he did it but he contacted the von erichs and said he was using it and they didnt object, just said he had to take it up with mc mahon?... He is not adopted and is butt broke from what i remember but a stand up guy. He does bullshit a little but i know he wouldnt go the extent of saying ufc or kotc. make sure it doesnt have to do with haterism....
I can find out more but ill have to talk to my sis and what gym is he teaching at? you need to talk to the owner and im pretty sure he knows layns back ground? did he ask for his boxing license? if hes teaching im pretty sure the owner knows he's qualified? really doesnt sound like Layn but ill find out.....
FYI...I don't think the Tae Kwon Do school cares. I know for a fact that they are aware of this website and this thread on Layn Von Erich.
If he is actually a VonErich then more than likely he has fighting skills. The Von Erichs I believe started in the wresteling industry a long time ago. The Von Erich's Were a family of wrestelers not unlike the gracie family and their bjj, just surprised that more of them aren't in the MMA circuit today since their family was considered to be hard core.

That's odd that they don't care.
