The picture of mother and child made me sad. She didn`t look happy.

Fair play to him for getting involved. But wasn`t the whole point of the video that he wanted to be treated equally and was going to compete as an equal? Then it ends with him fighting a much smaller opponent, getting destroyed, but the fight being called a draw anyway. And am I the only one who saw the part where both his parents call him a bigot who hates other disabled kids? Why has everyone so far ignored this? Is it because you all see him just as a retard who doesn`t know any better?

Touching..but he gets special treatment so it`s not really legit now is it?

Coming from the perspective of working with people with mental disabilities. This guy is amazing. His father absolutely made the right choice in letting him fight, and I`m sure he would make the same decision again. I would love to meet this guy and watch one of his fights.

people amaze me. Why would you say that he shouldn`t be able to fight? it`s what he likes to do. Should he be locked in the attic and hidden away from society? If it`s what he likes to do, the more power to him. I hope he gets better and better.

I would fight him. I`ll soften him up with a few "special knees" then finish him off with a body slam called "the untra take downs".

LOL at the guy with the giant `Monster` tattoo on his back, as for Gary ...must be pretty damn satisfying being able to say "I dont know but I can break yo face!"
