    Congenital Amputee Gets His MMA Fight

    What do you think about this?

    I am torn on the issue because I think his drive and determination are very impressive but I think if I had to be the one to sanction this I would be a bit apprehensive. I am really looking forward to seeing/reading the outcome on this fight and applaud him for pushing the boundaries and maximizing his potential.

    You know that the title of this thread makes no sense, right?

    Re: Congenital Amputee Gets His MMA Fight

    Yet another reason I hate MMA.

    Give it another few years and it will be no different than the WWF. What a publicity stunt.

    I respect the kid for having the courage to do this, but he's got no chance in an anything-goes kind of match. A real sport like wrestling would be one thing, but this is just dangerous.

    Re: Congenital Amputee Gets His MMA Fight

    How can you even punch somebody with just a stump? Not trying to make light of the situation by why would the other guy just not stand back and kick the living crap out of him?

    Ground and stump.

    You don't enjoy watching amputees get pummeled in a publicity stunt? Sicko.

    The only thing I can picture is MP's Holy Grail..."It's merely a flesh wound". How can this be a good decision?

    Re: Congenital Amputee Gets His MMA Fight

    I think this is the guy at a grappling competition, does decent, but the kid he's up against doesn't much resemble an MMA fighter.

    He's a downed opponent (because no legs / knees) so the rules don't allow knees / kicks to the head.

    No such thing as a congential amputation. Writer needs to do his homework.
