Only the inner circle knows that Skip's activities are highly classified and therefore not in his official service record.

Laughing at these SF hacks over at professional soldier.com not understanding.

FCFBlazer - Sickening all the BS he told about his military life, like a fantasy and one lie leading to another, etc. I don't feel sorry for him, and believe he should be accountable! Thread brings back a lot of memories from the past on the UG with the AL guys. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



Blazer find those pictures that LM posted on the local forum.

Pictures of Skip very close to Vietnam working for OGA.

These pictures will put this entire nightmare behind us.

Clearly this is all just a big misunderstanding.

I'd step in the cage against Kelly Rundle because I know he would take pity on me and try not to hurt me too bad, lol

it's not even a matter of cage/military. Being an athlete in a sport doesn't "entitle" anyone to any greater degree of respect than the guy who's working a job to support his children. Jason surely feels that way because it was his decision to be a fighter, again HIS decision. Respect yourself, don't entitle yourself to my respect because of your choice of profession. These are the same guys that were bashing fans for getting on the fighters that pissed hot. Guys like Jason were saying "we do it for the fans", the fuck you do, you do it because it's a profession you chose and you'll do what it takes to get ahead. My respect is widespread, but it isn't obligated to anyone based on profession, I go by character.

Wow! We got snowed, too. We had him on the show right before his fight with Kelly, and we ran on air ads for Sally's "Throwdown" cards, too. I'll see if I can dig up some audio.

Thanks for stepping up to admit this, I remember thinking you guys were in hook, line, and sinker.

Well, the audio from the interview is lame as fuck for several reasons. 

1. We really sucked (more than some of you think we do now, lol) our first couple years on air.

2. The audio quality was shit.

3. The interview was boring, because all we did was talk about Skip being really old and still fighting.

I did, however, get the audio from the commercial we ran, free of charge, for 3-4 weeks, leading up to Skip's fight:

 don't give a shit if he's figting at age 60something.  If he had the courage to step in the cage at that age, where was his courage to come clean about his military records or stop others from blowing shit out of proportion??? 

I believe I've earned a right to say this as a former military, FUCK THIS CRUSTY ASS OLD MAN AND HIS BS and EVERYONE ELSE that has to do with it.  FUCK HIM...

Just for laughs, I'll give you guys a quick Skip Hall story. This was after we had all locally found out that his BJJ rank was bogus, a group of guys from my gym had been at class and one of the guys told us about a local card at a local bar(5 points music hall). Several of us loaded up and went to the show and upon getting in found out that Skip was on the card. He had tons of guys from a local bodybuilding gym there to see him, there were muscleheads everywhere all cheering for Skip. When Skip's fight came up and before the first round, Skip winked and blew a little kiss at his opponent. The kid looked outmatched, he was very young and very soft looking. The bell rings and the fight was right to the floor Skip's no mercy guard was passed like loose stool. The guy then taps Skip with what I can only describe as a side naked choke that no 6 month white belt should have been caught in.
The best part of the whole story is as he tapped, you could have heard a pin drop in the place as all the bodybuilders went silent...well until one of the guys that trained with me in a drunken state held up his beer and yelled "Hell yeah". I almost felt bad for Skip.

Jason Reinhardt - Skip hall has my uptmost respect for stepping his 2 feet inside the cage at his age against much younger fighters. I didn't read all the stuff about the allegations of the military, but to me, Skip Hall deserves a little respect for having the courage, fighting in the cage time and time again. just my 2 cents. Jason Reinhardt


if thats how you want to be, thats cool. But for me and others, fighting inside the cage is fine but the respect thing for doing so gets overblown. You lie about your military record or lack thereof in some cases, and all that respect for fighting means jack and shit.
Agreed.  He doesn't deserve our respect...our pity maybe.  I wonder if his wife knew that it was all fabricated?  Because if she did, that puts her in the same category as him...a pathetic liar.

FINALLY!, Skip Hall = the single WORSE person I have ever done business with. I'm former 82d airborne and I always knew Skip's military stories sounded like complete bullshit. If you know what you are talking about it only takes a couple of questions to scratch the surface and know.

I always thought his stories about boxing as a kid were bullshit too. That was only based on his complete lack of stand up skills though.

Daniel Carver -

HELWIG -  I think a lot of people are the star of their own comic book in their mind and then allow that fantasy to spill out.




nicely put man.

This is just messed up. He's like an old Matt Barvo or Fred Vallari(my Dad kinda called him out in Bangor Maine when he was looking for something for me as a very young kid, total fraud).

That video of his "last fight" was sad to watch. For the dude who won actually. Skip made it look like a work. In half speed it looks like the shot that knocked him down missed and the one before grazed him.

 It took a lot of Nerve for Sally Hall to go behind the victor's back and get Skip's obvious loss changed into a "No Contest."  What a backstabbing bitch.  The guy was fighting Skip as a favor, agreeing to rule changes and basically carrying Skip so he wouldn't have to look bad in his last fight. 


What is really funny is that Kelly Rundle was one of the security guys at the airport in Texas when I returned from Iraq. He pulled me out of line because he knew I was a soldier. After a few questions I realized who he was and he told me how he felt bad for Skip and didnt want to hurt him in the fight so he held back. Kelly is a class act though. Ill have to dig and see if I can find the picture we took together that day.

This is the only piece of the audio from Skip's interview that might be of interest. He talks about judging UFC events, and about his wife, Sally's abilities as a promoter:

Gee yet another promoter not happy with Skip.


Now about your comments about his military stories, clearly you missed the part where hackers added those comments to his website.

So even if you heard these stories from Skip you need to realize it was not Skip telling the stories, but the hackers.


BTW that was a good show, you packed out the place.

Good crowd.

Hey sister, knock it off, stop promoting your show, and start contributing to this thread.

Have you not learned anything tonight about self promoting?


Did you truly never suspect anything from Skip or Sally ?

Realtalks, did you believe the junk they were spewing ?

I didn't read the whole thread but did see mentions of his wife. She used to be on here talking up Skip and everyone gave him a lot of respect on here.

If he is making up military stuff that takes it all away, sorry. I lost all the respect.

LOL, I remember Skip and the bodybuilder crew at Powerhouse gym. Every one of them looked like a big juiced up pumpkin.

I went to arby's after working out one night. The biggest Mr. Pumpkin man in Skip's entourage was in front of me ordering a sandwich. The guy was about as wide as he was tall. Anyway he proceeds to tell the girl behind the counter that he wants a sandwich with NO CHEESE. NO CHEESE. He was very emphatic about that point.

He orders, then I get to the counter and start to order something when he storms back up to the girl and starts screaming about cheese being on his sandwich. Dude opens the sandwich up, screaming the whole time, then SMEARS IT ALL OVER HIS OWN FACE.

The place went totally silent. You could hear the roast beef and cheese dripping off his orange face and plopping to the counter.

He shrieked one last time then sprinted out the doors.


I dunno, all I'm saying is that steroids are bad ummkay. Skip and the rest of the juicers up there are beyond fucked up.


wtf? lol!



It is funny, the body builders believed and promoted Skip as a fighter more than anyone else. Most of his private students came from the bodybuilding scene.

RavenFighter - Look at some of the articles this guy wrote.  Unbelievable.  Calling John McCain a coward, etc.

Dang McCain is a POW survior, it appears Skip Hall was typing stuff up stateside and he called McCain a coward?! His whole fake legacy is going to come crashing down.

Actually, all I saw (probably because anything to the contrary was deleted, as I'm now finding out) was that Skip was this beloved old dude that was fighting at 63 years of age.  It seemed like everybody loved this cat, so when Sally asked me to use their event promos, and to later put Skip on, I didn't have a problem with it.  We weren't  given any of the war stories (we didn't ask), we just got stuff about him being an old dude fighting, and about Sally promoting the event.  It was a short interview, with not much substance.  Sorry I wasn't privvy to the early bullshit everyone else seemed to know about firsthand.  I know now, so that's that.

Not sure if we were there at the same time or not, I was in and out during those years at the SAMBO club. By that time there were many new people.

Bigwormy was the ringer of the SAMBO club in those days (Jody in the old days), so wormy may know more, or you may be thinking about him.

You put together quite a show, plus it had a real energy.
