sankaku_gatame - We have a local guy here in Springfield, Missouri, who could easily make this list. His name is Glenn Cozzens and he is the most shameless liar you will ever meet. He claims an MMA record of 47-6-3 but never fought MMA a day in his life, has at various times posed as a teacher of virtually every martial art known to man, from wing chun to BJJ to wrestling to Muay Thai, made outrageous claims of beating or drawing with name fighters like Cung Le, Jeremy Horn, etc. Somehow this guy even BS'd his way into getting the local paper to print an article about him wherein he claimed to have fought Royce Gracie no less.

He was never even belted in BJJ, then left town and came back with a black belt. He gives seminars around here and elsewhere and now claims he is an All-State wrestler and National kickboxing champion.
Of course, in addition to all this, he poses as an upstanding Christian and pillar of the community (never seen that angle before).

 


I want to read his autobiography now.

The one guy who was telling everyone on twitter that he was the light heavyweight champ and defending his title against Thiago Silva on a Tuesday on "paper view" last year is one of my favorites. Phone Post

GSTREBENDT - nrallen, yes i did. I still talk with Bryan Richards family from time to time hoping that one day we can get Angel Richards charged criminaly. We already found her guilty in a civil trial but the level is much higher in a criminal trial. She was the cause of the whole thing.
Gerald, nrallen asked his question back in September 2011. I ttt'ed this thread after seeing Ed Doty's new short film on Rafiel Torre. Phone Post

Holy crap, I remember Cozzens from the Combat List way back in the day, I still have a bunch of emails from him.

At the time, he claimed to be a jeet kune do instructor who also did a lot of grappling.

Seemed like an OK dude at the time, never made any bizarre claims back then that I can recall...

Always funny.

It's too bad Mark Bailey's website doesnt exit anymore.

It really was a riot reading his fight record and his opponents names.

The description of the names in that article was spot on.
