You see a lot of vandalism on wikipedia pages, especially the ones about subjects no-one could be reasonably expected to give a rat's patoot about. You know, like Mostapha al-Turk. As a result, inaccuracy creeps in. Changes are made and no-one bothers to check them or even notices them. Until a man too tired to do anything useful but unable to sleep finds a steaming load of horse apples, then posts it to BE for your delication. I didn't write this nonsense, and I'm not going to bother correcting it (because, as previously noted - who cares?) but I thought you fellers and non-fellers might find it amusing.
Most of al-Turk's amateur career is up for speculation, as the Middle Eastern nations he fought in kept no documentation of the fights he participated in. Rumor has it that he was pitted against top level competition and big name fighters, such as Dan Henderson, Royce Gracie, Dan Severn, Chuck Liddell, Brian Ebersole, Bob Sapp, Jeremy Horn, Tim Sylvia, Jeff Curran, BJ Penn, Giant Silva, Joe Riggs, and even Fedor Emelianenko. Al-Turk’s cumulative record is said to be somewhere around 66-6, but no one knows for sure.
I...see. 'Rumor has it' eh? Well, that's good enough for me! Mostapha al-Turk choked out Royce Gracie and KOed Dan Henderson in a one night tournament...somewhere...once...probably...maybe even at the same time.
