    I don't know what the MMA scene is like in your area, but around here, everyone pretty much knows everyone, or at least within like a degree of separation. It should be easy to find out if he's legit, I assume.

    You do realize that when he is at a new job he will tell everybody that he challenged you and you kept making excuses...

    It always happens.

    Better to say nothing more. Even if the kid is full of **** you're opening yourself up to a case of intimidation and bullying, you could lose you're job over a dipshit. Chances are everyone knows he's a prick anyway.

    **** that sucks, pretty much one of the reasons i haven't told anyone at work i train martial arts yet. They generally go 'oooh' and think of the tkd,karate,wing chun people they know who boast about their deadly techniques. Instead i go to the 'gym' straight after work every day of the week.

    Your best bet is to only talk about him if one of your co-workers mention him and plainly say that he's full of it. No reason to make his problems your own, he'll sink by himself.

    I'm sure this guy lies about several thousand other details of his life. Play dumb about what he does with other people ("Oh, so-and-so trains? I've never seen him at any of the tournaments/fights/etc, so I didn't know that"). Let him make his own noose and tell people after he embarrasses himself and quit that you knew he was full of it all along but felt bad for him. You come out looking like an ego-free hero, him like the sack of vinegar and water that he clearly is.

    #1: The PanAM games do have a very competitive karate competition, but it's krotty not mma (and I doubt he was there either).

    #2: Thank you for reminding me why I never talk to anyone about martial arts except the people in my martial arts classes!!

    #3: People like this are why whenver I see nothing but "mma" in people's style fields I half-assume they self-train in their backyard.

    Edit: Oh, and there's a specific U.S. team that goes to the Pan Am games and similar int'l competitions. You should be able to check and see if he was a member (the coach is Tokey Hill), but seriously, why waste more time on that douche? He's just sad and wants attention.

    My sentiments exactly. I think he's gonna get fired today, azamaterafact.

    Don't sound so depressed,

    That'd be serendipitous.

    Actually, this whole thread has gotten me to check myself every time I start talking about my BJJ classes at work. There is an actual, in-the-flesh kung fu practitioner who buys the whole street-vs-sport line of crap that sits at our lunch table...
