    Bullshido Featured in Real Fighter Magazine Article on Khristian Geraci



    Sacha Feinman has written an article on Khristian Geraci in the current issue of Real Fighter Magazine. In it, he features Bullshido's contribution to Geraci's downfall:

    Quote Originally Posted by Sacha Feinman
    Geraci's bio on the Iron City website boasted of his black belt and an MMA fight record that had grown to 19-6-1. An inquiry by [Jimmy] Cerra on an MMA forum was picked up by the amateur investigators at the debunking Bullshido.com, who sunk their skeptical teeth into his body of work like lions working a gazelle. A detailed deconstruction of Geraci's self-made myth soon followed.

    Everything was made public: the "black belt" that was nothing, the questionable work ethic. Past associates and sparring partners emerged to denounce Geraci and ruin his reputation. Sources poured in, saying that Geraci had always represented himself as a black belt, that he was constantly bragging about his unbeaten record as an amateur and pro boxer, that he'd alternatively claimed to being a Navy Seal or a Marine sniper. Geraci had invented a character, also named Khristian Geraci, and someone had finally pulled the curtain.

    "That post really ruined my gym," sighs Geraci. "It was all over after that. The Bullshido page was, for the most part, accurate. The mistakes were mine; I let people believe things that weren't true. What I realize now is that actions and output would have been more than enough. I had a good thing going at Iron City, a good group of guys, and I let that get away from me. I regret that very deeply."
    As confessions go, it's not the best. Geraci did a lot more than "let people believe things that weren't true"; he told them the lies, and actively maintained them until they were no longer tenable.

    However, as press exposure for Bullshido goes, it's hard to beat this as a solid endorsement of our work.

    Let the next gazelle beware.

    Read the Bullshido article that ended Khristian's reign of error.

    Thanks to Stephen Koepfer, who wrote the original Geraci article on Bullshido and gave Feinman valuable assistance in writing his article for Real Fighter.

    No gym currently.
    I love it when you two are being coy.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    seems to me this should be referenced on the bullshido.net wikipedia page. mentions in reliable sources are useful.
