    A guy named Kyle Maynard is stepping into the ring/cage, but he's different. He has no arms and no legs and will/has fought his first mma fight. I hope all goes well for him but this seems like publicity to me. I know the guy is following his dream and give him tons of credit but this doesnt seem like a good idea to me. Ya'll think he should fight, and would you watch it?

    Just checked the fight and he lost 30-27 by UD.

    I saw that guy on a tv special before. He was wrestling at the time and everyone was saying that even with those set backs he's still a pretty good wrestler...I cant really imagine how it he could get by in the sport but hey...good on him.:wink:

    I read or saw something like that too, if I remember right he has a winning record.

    I hope this is his last fight, eventually someone will really fight him instead of sparring. I dont think it could end well. His opponent is in a lose-lose situation. Beat the crap outta him your the guy who beats up amputees, you lose your the guy who lost to an amputee.

    Guess you can't kick him in the head, either because his knees are always on the ground. What a sideshow!
