    He said in an interview that he was an amateur boxer training for the 2000 Olympics. I cant find any of his boxing fights or boxing training.

    What a load of bollocks.
    If he was training for the boxing in the 2000 Olympics then so was I.

    Chael was a world champion in every martial arts known to man, he just couldn't implement them all together unfortunately.

    I never thought I'd be witness to something like this. Chael is actually giving Brendan a run for his money with his lack of boxing knowledge. Wow.

    I don't know why this is so hard to believe. He was outstriking Anderson Silva easily in their first fight until he got caught in a flying triangle choke. ANDERSON SILVA

    Rumour has it that his amateur record is 32-4. Not bad for a gangster.

    When you come from the rough streets of West Linn, Oregon, you got to find ways to focus your anger, otherwise, you might never live to see the age of 21.
