View Full Version : Amputee to fight in MMA

04-24-2009, 11:48 AM
"This time, Kyle Maynard left home and made his way to Auburn, Ala., a week early.

Two years ago, when he almost made his amateur mixed-martial-arts debut, Maynard held a greater concern about all his fight meant and how much it was despised in the MMA community. He had been home in Suwanee, Ga., where his MMA interest began more than two years before as a high school senior.

But too many people didn't want him to fight. They didn't like the idea of an accomplished high school wrestler who was born with no arms or legs below the elbows or knees with an awesomely inspirational personal story participating in an Atlanta amateur event. The Georgia body that sanctions such events didn't like the idea either, so officials denied Maynard a license to fight, and the issue went dormant. "


You've heard of being busier than a one-legged man in an arse kicking contest? How 'bout this ...:rimshot:

All jokes aside, he does have certain 'advantages'. He will not have to worry about leg kicks, arm bars, knee bars, heel hooks, nor kimoras(spelling?).

... anyone not see this coming?

"Despite all the hype, all the questions, all the concerns of safety and regulations heading into the professional MMA debut of congenital amputee Kyle Maynard, the final product failed to answer many questions other than, "What happens if Maynard can't take his opponent down?"

The inspirational former high school wrestler and ESPY award winner for Best Athlete with a Disability may be forced to recognize his limitations in MMA following a unanimous-decision loss in the main event of Saturday's Auburn Fight Night in Auburn, Ala. "


:lol: I wonder if Fry stiff-armed Maynard's forehead like a toddler and allowed him to flail away? (I'm going to hell for that one.) :lol:
