    Olympic wrestling claims are pretty easy to verify...

    Pretty fuckin weak claim... His 8-2 MMA record is legit, why not just use that? One of his wins was against a teammate of mine who took him down at will throughout the fight.
    Oh man...and the hits just keep on coming. Before checking out the link, the one thing that caught my attention was the fact that it mentions "185 lb" division. I guess that would be equivalent to the 84kg division. I'm not sure if that is an outright blatant falsehood or "webmaster error". I guess the dust might be getting kicked up again.

    IIF[Edit full post is in cull thread]

    Since you are here, maybe you can help us all out:

    http://www.gamebredmma.com/instructors.html

    Honestly, that was my first time seeing Olympic wrestling weights in pounds and not kilograms. That is what peaked my curiosity. Also, being the 185pd Olympic Bronze medalist is an easy enough achievement to find. However, this gentleman's name has yet to be found. A search for his name does show his multiple MMA fights, it shows nothing about Olympic medals other then the Gamebred website.

    If it is a website error, it is a website error. If we are in error, then we are in error. But if this is an attempt at being deceptive then you people are going to get on your case.

    Understand something. When you use these credentials as a means of attracting paying customers to your business, you open yourself up for scrutiny. It isn't anything personal, it's just the way business is done. When you accept money to teach a certain skill-set, that skill-set is subject review just like a doctor, lawyer, teacher, etc, and so forth.

    You have to accept this and I'm sure Michael understands this quite well considering what he had to go through when this thread was first created. Instead of the whole "you're just jealous" or "don't hate on us" why not provide some facts that would dispel any assumptions of wrongdoing...

    So it looks like he competed at Beijing, very impressive!
    Looking around I don't see anything suggesting he won a medal, though he clearly is an exceptional athlete.
    Did he compete for the bronze and take 4th?

    You're right, and he's listed on here:
    http://www.2008.nbcolympics.com/athl...bio/index.html

    but no mention of a bronze medal.

    From what I have been able to find, He took 4th in the 2007 South Pacific Games for freestyle.

    And he took 3rd for Greco in the same games

    One thing I don't get about this thread. MProctor offered anyone to come to his gym and it seems like there are several bullies in the area. Why didn't anyone go there, talk to him, roll, and report back what they thought of his skill level?

    Yes, 10 months is a big jump from 2 stripe blue to 3 stripe purple, but it's not impossible. I'm only a no stripe blue belt but I bet I can get my purple belt in less then 3 months. Would that mean I'm bullshido, bought my rank, or have a giant red flag over my head?

    I'm glad MProctor and Coach Foster jumped on this thread and cleared things up. I just think people were a bit quick in making judgments about a persons rank without actually rolling with the person.

    I rolled with him many times while trained at Foster's. In fact, more than one person that has rolled with him while he trained there has posted. But you're right, someone should go roll with him, but I don't think it should be me because I'm massively bigger than him and I think it would be a bit unfair/non-indicative of his skill. I have atleast 60lbs on him.

    Michael Proctor (135 lbs) vs Aaron Macomber (165 lbs)

    YouTube- Michael Proctor (135 lbs) vs Aaron Macomber (165 lbs) if you all want to see his ability just watch his fight. i think that taking a guy 30 lbs heavier than you is a decent enough achievement. i do not doubt that Michael earned his rank and i do not doubt he is a skilled fighter. Congrats on the win Michael ill be in around July 30th and id like to roll
