    If they don't care it's because the TKD place is just trying to capitalize on the 'MMA craze'. Don't worry, PanAmSilver is up in Dallas and he is not very fond of frauds. :)

    Ok.. the "Layn Von Erich" guy did fight..
    but supposedly his real name is Ralph Castillo and he lost.
    but he's disputing it becuase of a knee to the head?


    did anyone see this fight?

    ...can we get verification on the alias? Since, Layn Von Erich aka Ralph Castillo is a purported "MMA" Champion with no verifiable amateur nor pro fight record....how did he fare? Maybe he fought in those Nicaraguan underground cage fights with Tiger Clay?

    How did the "MMA Champ" fare in his 1st verifiable fight? KO/Decision?

    I'm seriously contemplating changing my name. To get in the VIP Fraud circuit.

    I was there. I don't remember every fight, but a guy named Ralph Calvillo fought in match #1. He is listed as hailing from North Dallas, 155lbs, 0-1 record, with his style listed as JKD(Bruce Lee), fighting for a team called 'Boneyard'. Though I do not remember this fight per se, if this is him then he got beat bad and quickly as the first 3 fights were all over in under a minute and there were no questionable stoppages all night.

    In Texas, knees to the head are completely legal unless you are the ground. I remember watching the first 3 fights(as my guy fought 9th and there were 2 intermissions before his fight so we watched the first 5 fights and then we went backstage to wrap his hands and warm him up), but I can't remember them exactly other than they were over quick and there was a clear winner in each of them. I can say for certain that no one was introduced as Layn Von Erich.

    Sherdog says he lost to Eric Gerber from strikes 43 seconds into the 1st round.

    TLDR shows he lost by sub to Tim Snyder from Houston at 1:39 in the 1st round back in June, but it isn't listed on Sherdog yet.

    The fight card I have was printed after the weigh-ins, so it was 100% correct. Ralph Calvillo was indeed matched up with Eric Gerber. It was the 1st fight of the night.

    Accoding to my friend who was there (one of the TKD students from that center)
    he said that it was contested because of a knee to the head while on the ground?
    but I can't say either way as I wasn't there to see the fight.

    Maybe one of you can comment if there was in fact a dispute over the decision.
