It is fake:
I see what you mean, but until I looked them up I did not know any of the people you listed. Sonnon is fairly well known. When you look up his products he seems to have bought up all Google references so that one is directed to sites that support or sell his stuff. It is actually a little scary.

Sonnon is a skilled athlete aside from his other flaws. He was probably well over-qualified for this event, knew he would get some easy wins, and also knew he would have a great marketing opportunity. He has been bragging and blogging about this event for most of the year.

So, I dug a little deeper and if you go to the rules, once again, it is an interesting play on words.
In this .pdf link go to page 56/57 in the Adobe page counter box not the actual article page numbers.
Also, you can look for Article #34 Grapple/Strike Competition (GSTC) for a possible definition:
for a MIXTURE OF MARTIAL ART Styles
Yes, I am not questioning his skill just looking at a weird video provided as proof.

I do like how, in Sonnon's world, one Gold medal and one Silver medal=4 Gold medals.Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

IIF, in terms of his resume', I would add the questionable yoga lineage and training which he states is the foundation stone for his prasara yoga. This had not been discussed in this thread, but, it has been covered in other threads here on Bullshido and WWG. I think it is important to include here if his resume' and possible prblems with it are being discussed:
Back to sonnon's yoga connection with "Amma"...
I contacted her organization to see if he was formally affiliated with them. Considering he claims to have trained with her for over a decade and that while training with her he saw how her older body could surpass what his young one could do, I found this reply to be very interesting:
Aum Amriteshwaryai Namah
Amma has many children (students or devotees) around the world. Often they chose to recognize Amma for the inspiration and teachings she gives, so mention of Amma's name can be found on many websites, in books, films, works of art, etc. This is a personal matter of people giving reference to Amma; it is not to be confused with the formal representation of Amma and her humanitarian work and spiritual teachings.
The person described in the website http://prasarayoga.com/ is not formally affiliated with the M.A. Math, nor does his website represent one of Amma's or the Math's activities. However, he may well be a devotee of Amma and may wish to publicly recognize the influence she has had in his life on his personal website.
If you would like information about Amma, please visit our official websites (see below). Feel free to ask if you have further questions.
