    He tried suing Van Damme for blood sport and lost. So this tells me he was unable to produce evidence of much of his exploits.

    Yeah, but in Bloodsport I was single elimination. Either way, the guy is clearly full of shit. That isn’t him on the video. The actual fighter’s kids are suing Frank Dux or issuing a cease and desist or something because he stole their dad’s footage.

    Idea: what if we found up all these bull shido guys and made them fight Kumite style. I’d PPV the hell out of that.

    I remember old Bullshido forum threads about him. Some people said he actually had students in some local tournaments and they were actually decent, so I'm sure he had some ability, but perhaps not the seemingly hyperbolic ability that he claimed.

    Why? Was he saying that The Quest was ripping off his second tournament or something?

    There used to be an article on Cracked.com about this by Seanbaby but luckily it can be found on the bullshido forums as well:

    "Claims by Frank Dux that the film was a rework of a script he had written in 1991, entitled "Enter the New Dragon: The Kumite," were rejected by a jury."

    From the wikipedia article about The Quest.

    Didn't Zane Frazier say he was a pretty tough guy after he beat Dux up in an elevator? Obviously Dux made all that other shit up, but that's something at least.
