    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Orlando, FL: Jimmy Lyons...5 Time MMA World Champion???

    FINALLY, some Bullshido in my neck of the woods to look into.

    This past weekend while watching UFC:77 at my house, a friend of mine pointed to a local advertising flier that was on my counter and came in the mail.

    It read....

    Tyson Sports Institute

    Personal Training....call now for an appointment

    Train with the best, 5 time MMA World Champion Jimmy Lyons

    Shape up now...with kick aerobics, Olympic boxing, co-ed kick boxing, MMA and TKD
    This place is literally 5 minutes from my house.

    A quick search on Sherdog and FCF fight record listings do not show a "Jimmy Lyons" as having any pro or amature MMA fights.

    Also, here is a clip from a press release for Tyson Sports Institute which I found during a cursory google search...

    Tyson Sports Personal Training Institute Launching New Health Club in Orlando, Florida

    Orlando, FL, January 25, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Jimmy Lyons, 5 times World Martial Arts Champion and Fitness Expert, will be opening a Personal Training Institute in Orlando, FL. Students from all over the world are invited to attend their Tyson Sports Training Institute (TSI). Along with obtaining their personal training certificate, students will obtain their certification in CPR, AED, Aerobics, and 1st degree black belt. The personal training program lasts 6 months. Their program allows students to obtain a multi-certification and hands on training. Tyson Sports Institute will be opening up hundreds of new Health Clubs across the country.

    With Tyson Sports Institute opening up multiple health clubs across the country, this allows students to have a successful future in the health and fitness industry. TSI's goal is to teach students how to make $100,000 a year. TSI students will have the opportunity to meet fitness celebrity's during their school year. TSI is scheduled to open April, 2007.

    For more information on Tyson Sports Institute (TSI ) personal training certification program, contact Jimmy Lyons at info@Tsifitness.com.
    So, a flyer boosts him as a "5 time MMA World Champion" while the press release states that he is a "5 time Martial Arts World Champion".....potential false advertising to ride the coat tials of the MMA craze.

    Plus, a 1st degree black belt awarded in 6 months???????

    I'm gonna go check this place out and post any findings here.

    I think the more important question is, "A 1st degree black belt in what?" There is no martial artform listed-- not even a generic "MMA." Does he teach Karate? TKD? Muay Thai? Rex Kwon Do? Quack Fu? Maybe it's a Shodan in fitness walking...

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I bet he will say his fights were illigal at the time and so there is no record.

    ..and since they were to the "death" matches, no one is alive to talk about them.

    Please, let's not jump to conclusions. Let's approach this without the e-dicking clusterfuck in hopes that he can attend a TD and see what's up.

    How about that?

    Yes!, which means 5 times world champion = 5 and 0. Or even better, 5 and 100. He got his title shots through luring his opponents into a false sense of security.
