Clearly, Tae Kwon Do leads to sex offense.

As for the on-topic part, a lot of people claimed a lot of styles in the early days of the UFC. Almost as often, these people had no business claiming the style, much less being in the Octagon, so it's not really fair to judge an art by what some guy filled out on his fighter info form. Even today, few, if any, traditional martial artists show up in the cage/ring. There are more than a few who have transitioned from TMAs to MMA and are able to bring what works with them, though.
