Little bit of breed education - anyone can be registered with the AKC, the CKC, and any of the "breed" clubs, but it doesn't make them an actual breed until you can take two of those dogs and produce a litter of puppies of the same breed. This take generations of puppies and decades to accomplish, and the "American Bully" was only recently founded in 1990.
I could make up a breed right now, make a website, and claim it as the "official" club, but it means absolutely nothing.
Some history behind the "American Bully" (http://www.realpitbull.com/bully.html
) - Along comes Dave Wilson, a ‘pioneer’ in the bully movement. Dave Wilson essentially took the ‘bully’ fad (or threw gasoline on a spark, depending upon how you look at it), and attempted to give it some credibility by naming these bully style dogs the ‘American Bully’ and prompting the creation of a new breed, separating ‘bully’ Pit Bulls from American Pit Bull Terriers. Sort of.
Creating a new breed takes time. Decades really, or more. It takes organization, and a lot of people on the same page, agreeing upon the same things, and working together towards a common goal.

The NEWLY formed American Bully Kennel Club (the ABKC) promotes the American Bully as its own "breed," yet states quite clearly on the website that, “All dogs currently registered as American Pit Bull Terriers
and American Staffordshire Terriers
will be registered with us as an American Bully.” What? So they're claiming its a breed (which means no other dogs involved to create litters), yet they're allowing ACTUAL dog breeds to be considered "American Bullies?" A name change does NOT a breed make.
