    Never fight a man who`s teeth are crotch level!

    Personally I couldnt fight a disabled guy. I accept that both guys are willing participants but I`d feel guilty hitting him. Even if I won I`d still be losing!

    thats just dumb, its not like he is helping empower disabled people either, just makes himself look like an idiot. id have just tried to properly kick the poo out of him for being so drating retarded.

    Brave or stupid, that`s just wrong. You could see the other guy just didn`t want to hit him. I`m amazed he even agreed to fight him. Two disabled guys would have been fair but this is taking it to the realms of insanity. It`d be like fighting a toddler.
    It did remind me a little of the black night scene in Monty Pythons Holy Grail though.

    so who won? at first i was cheering for the little guy but after a while it was starting to creep me out watching him wiggle and hop around. By the end of it me and my bf were cheering on the big guy to deck the jumping bean out

    Lose lose situation for the normal guy, if he loses he got beat by a paraplegic guy, and if he wins he beat up a paraplegic guy.

    Seriously, how exactly is he supposed to fight? I think people with disabilities can do amazing things, but he can`t grab the guy to submit him, he can`t hold him in a mount, he can`t kick him. Can he effectively punch?
    I think the other guy should have at least gone to the ground with him to see if SOME kind of exchange could have been had. That was just frustrating!

    Needed to be titled "World’s First QUADRUPLE Amputee MMA Fighter." I was expecting it to be a dude with one arm and two legs, at least he`d have a chance. I gotta give the guy credit for trying, but jeez, he needs a couple artificial limbs!

    He went to my highschool, no joke.
    He was one of the top wrestlers because he weighed nothing so he was in the lightest weight class but the guy is a complete freaking beast. I bet kyle would have won if he was able to get the other guy to wrestle him.

    I`m guess he was trying ot lure him in closer when he sat up. And hop on the opponent.

    I can see it happening.

    He`s got a good torso and shoulders. I wonder how the heck he trains.

    I guess you can`t kick or the amputee would be like a football on a tee.

    I agree with Kikeni, it`s unfair to both guys.

    i saw that guy wrestling one time, and that may be fair, but not this...little dude cant really throw any punches or kicks, while the other guy could just stand back and kick....i dont think its an actual contest, i mean, the normal guy is not doing everything he can to win

    I can`t see how the dude has any chance. Either pick him up or lie on him. The one with legs was taking it easy.

    Still, props for the fighting spirit.

    I honestly think this is a little unfair to the other guy...

    Seriously, if he wins, it`s not like he can take pride in it. The amputee can`t really DO anything but charge into the other guys legs and hope he falls...

    But damn, man, that little bastard is FAST! He`s like a hamster or something, just zooming along on tiny little... Legs?

    ... I feel like a horrible person now...

    How are you supposed to fight something that just kind of glides across the ground like that??? I dont think he was taking it light, its just going to be a completely different fighting style when they are so low to the ground.

    I use a wheelchair. I have spina bifida.
    Now that I`ve established cred, I have 2 things to say:
    1. If your only attack is a head-butt to the knee, MMA is not for you.
    2. If anybody actually had the guts/was enough of a moron to hit me right in the face, I`d be down in half a second. I bet same with him.

    I understand this guy competing in wrestling or even bjj, but when it comes to a sport when standing up is HALF the game, whats the point? If he can`t kick or punch, he really has no reason to fight in a sport where its something you need to know.

    I`m all for people with disabilities being treated equally but this is disgusting. I don`t care how strong or fit this man is he can`t compete with a man that actually has joints. I want to see proof of him winning in a wrestling match. Just because someone has a disability doesn`t mean they aren`t a person but it CAN mean they aren`t equal in some ways. It`s sad but it`s true. The man has no elbows or legs. He can`t lock you up and pin you. That`s just wrestling. In MMA he`s already down on the mat and if you aren`t taking it easy on him you can simply pound away at him. Whoever let him in the ring in the first place should be beat.

    fighting involves punching and kicking... how is this fighting? He would be way more interesting if he had some breakdancing skills instead. I used to play baseball with a boy who was paralyzed from the waist down and he was awesome. This has got to be embarrassing to the handicap community.

    I`ve seen an MMA fighter with his leg amputated below the knee fight. It was here in Michigan last year. Fought while wearing a soft plastic prothesis, but he was still wobbled on it. Trained to become a MMA fighter, went to Iraq, lost his leg, came back to try MMA again. And yes, he won. No a soul sitting in that arena I tell ya.

    I read "amputee" as mean missing maybe an arm or a leg, Not all 4 limbs. How was this fighting ?

    I`m all for disabled people having equal rights, But this isn`t the way to that goal.

    At least not until the Japanese make some better replacement robotic limbs.
