Just found this here - http://members.aol.com/indywrestling...mpetitors.html
The birth date does match the court records I found .
Name: Khristian Geraci
Contact: [email protected]
Nickname: The Sandman
Team: Pittsburgh Fight Club
Date Of Birth: 7/27/77
Weight: 155 lbs.
Titles: Golden Glove State Champ, All Armed Forces Champion
Promotions Worked: Rise Fighting Champ., World Extreme, Sportfighting, Combat in a Cage, Reality Fighting
Amateur Record: 14-1-0
Professional Record: 3-4-0-1NC
That's pretty good confirmation. Unusual spelling of first name, same last name, same date-of-birth. It would be one helluva coincidence if it turns out it's not the same guy.
I think we have a Bingo.
All that information was probably given to Amy (the girl who runs that web site) by Khristian. Or she looked it up on the internet without verifing it.

It clocks in at 21 minutes. I'm off to watch 'The Shield' but I'll give it listen later.
Considering the Fubar profile. I posted earlier, has the exact same birth date with matching pictures to his myspace page it would have to be a clone.

Umm guys I would hate to be the one to point this out , but as far as I know he is still managed by Dallas Cordts of team apocolypse. I know he was back in Febuary of this year. He does seem like a nice guy but, he did tell me he was a BJJ black belt and these stories about his military records and so on. He also told me he was on the show Tap Out and that's why Dallas said she wanted to sign him so people would think the team is legit. Now I am not sure who was more then a pawn, Dallas or Him. I know he always post advertisements of his fights and always uses the "Tap Out thing" when they are advertiseing him. I have never seen him on the show, but I figured that wouldn't be some thing you could just say and get advertised on fights. Then again I could be wrong.
Right now a pattern is being established. SCBM needs to be contacted for their story.

According to the article, he was under their management in 2007.

I'm surprised being on the "Tapoout" show hadn't been brought up yet..
He claimed he was a 17-1 boxer, and while Sherdog's database for MMA is reasonably accurate, Boxrec is very accurate for boxing...
Contrary to his defense here, and I can't guarantee it since I haven't seen it in awhile, I think he did claim he won Golden Gloves on the show...
This is my first post here. I am impressed with the level that you all dig in that ass. I'm listening to the podcast now,
-He just stated that his father was a Navy Seal and taught him
"martial arts". Somebody might want to check out his Dads service record if you can narrow it down with just a last name.
I'm calling BS on his claims that somebody else does his website for him. If he paid for that then he is dumber than he is deceptive.
Keep diggin, this is both informative and entertaining
PS~ This is by far the worst podcast I have ever listened to in any genre.
