Pro MMA fighters who are vastly harder trained than KFG probably was, when they get a glancing shot to the nuts they need a minute to recover. They also wear cups. Watching the video it appears that several strikes might have hit inner thigh rather than groin. He also seemed to be able to defend a decent amount of the groin shots with hand blocks and retreating movements. If KFG took shots to the groin then he must literally have balls of steel because he never seemed to register any kind of pain from it. I personally don't think he was wearing a cup. Given how form fitting his pants were you would see a buldge in his groin when you see his profile. The vid caps measuring his height a few posts up are perfect for this. If you think about baseball players and how obvious their cups appear with the tight pants they wear or used to back in 80's/90's, there is almost no buldge in KFG's pants in the groin area so I would submit that he was cupless and WJD just never landed a clean groin hit.
Also WW, once he stated that he was not interested in fighting and was not going to physically touch anyone, wouldn't that remove any relevance as to if he was expecting to fight? I'd assume that even if he initially agreed to a match and then changed his mind once he got there and realized the situation that the cup becomes irrelevant.
Pizza Hut in Dumfries is owned by COMMODORE RESTAURANTS LLC
Richard T. Ferrell of Norfolk, Va., is listed as the manager of the limited liability
company in documents filed with the North Carolina Secretary of the State’s office. Raleigh-based National Corporate Research Ltd. appears as the registered agent in North Carolina.
I appear to run dry at that point. It looks like they have only owned the francise there since 1998.
I have sent to Pizza Hut corporate asking them to identify the franchisee as of 1984. Not hopeful but will post this up if anything comes of it.

NO. Absolutely not. Same old, same old. "other officers"
"Don't bother about the case because some unknown anonymous person "assures" everyone that the case was taken care of a long time ago." It's just one more heresy story to stack up with all the others. For all anyone knows posted by BJB himself.
By all means if anyone has any info, please bring it in.
If nobody can put up hard evidence,, the case is still wide open.

I will try to get a hold of the guy who posted that answer on yahoo when I get off work tonight. Every lead is still a lead until it can be deemed incredulous so until I find something that doesnt sound right about that guy I'm following up on it because it was just posted less than two hours ago. Also, can someone please give me war wheel's contact info? I'm trying to write a follow up article about the amazing job the members are doing on this post and he actual commented on my first article but didnt leave any contact info, just the link to this site.
Just saw Craigslist ad! Great job... a dragon tattoo is mentioned in the ad, though... I had the impression that a Tiger was referenced in the video as he points to his forearm, and that several references were made to a possible tiger tattoo in this thread. Not sure if this is a minor editorial issue, or my oversight. I apologize if it is. Thanks!

A cup could also support sparring. I always wore a cup when I sparred way back when.
I personally think they didn't land clean from what I see of the video.

If anybody is on twitter, click here to help start spreading the word about this.
I have just listened to the audio for about 10 minutes and where it is cut off there is a beginning of a name. It sounds like Ric...., maybe KFG's name is along the line of Richard or Rick. The audio bite that Dad61 has so graciously provided a .wav file and I am unable to upload it. Maybe someone else that is a mod or a season poster such as War Wheel or IIF can pick up on what might be cut out better than I can. No offense to any n00bs but I trust guys that I know with my personal information.
Below is a .jpg of where the cut was made in the audio. This is not my doing but provided to me by Dad61, if it works on finding KFG give him accolades for working on the audio.
