    Ultimately, it's because the records he claims cannot be verified. Whether it's just limited access to those records or they don't exists, it doesn't leave people who want to know with a good vibe about his past.

    Let me give you just one of several examples. Van Damme claims that he was a member of the Belgium karate team that won the European Karate Championship in 1979 held in Belgium. However, the 1979 tournament was held in Helsinki, Finland, and it was the Netherland team that won the championship, with the French taking 2nd (Silver), and Finland 3rd (Bronze). Kind of hard to explain that away.

    Because he claimed to be a kickboxing champion when he never fought a match.

    Where is the video if he did, all you get his his movie fights and a few tournaments from karate, nothing in kickboxing because it never happened.
