I have to ask this question after an encounter that I had today with a guy who claimed to be a Black Belt in BJJ and an accomplished MMA competitor, I knew he wasn't.

Any input? (I'll tell my response at a later date)

Offer them out under your rules if they are really an accomplished fighter they will have the ability to adapt to your rules quickly

don't offer to test them ask them to show you some moves and when you go put them in a world of hurt, this way just in case they were telling the truth you do not look foolish

Why would you look foolish when you fight foir real and you tried your hardest and you lose are you going to feel foolish. No because its a learning experience and aslong as you dont sneer and be rude about it then their is no need for embarrasment

I ment it in the sense that if you called them out acting like they know nothing and your skills are superior just because they happen to be a braggart, then you would look the punk or what ever. but by being like hey man wanna show me a few things or just do a friendly spar or what not, then if the person really is that good, no one would have expected you to do so good, since you were not running your mouth.

Smile

I live in the midwest. THere isn't anything else but "tough guys" here. Their training involves these steps. 1. buy beer 2. drink beer then you are an official honorary chuck liddel for the rest of the evening.
or you have these guys...
They show up to the gym just once to look around.
Next you have people come up to you and ask if you know the ultimate fighter such and such.. you know, about the same guy that just looked at the gym and automatically became a promiment killer at the gym.
LOL

I have offered many to show up at the gym one night to watch us train.
These are the ones that say that they could whoop my arse.
