But what if the one armed athlete continues to succeed?
He can succeed out of technique and toughness as Royce won over monsters like Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock or Cris Cyborg could eventually decapitate a low ranked male Flyweight, but they don't belong to the same category, IMO.
No one discredits a win over Matt Hammil because he is deaf, and that is a huge disadvantage.
That is really debatable. The only thing "bad" is he can't hear his cornermen during the fight, right? I can't think of any other. But how many with perfect ears listen (and follow) to their corners instructions anyway?
If this fighter were to somehow make it to a professional level the stuff you are talking about would have to stop.
What stuff will have to stop and why? Emit my opinion? If I have my reasons not to be fond of something I'll broadcast it anyway. I can get convinced in time as well and change my mind. That happens more than often.
There are members here against WMMA, so what? They can't say that no more just because the girls made to the UFC?
I'm sure the one armed fighter doesn't like being thought of that way, so to not allow him to compete because of something like perceived fan favoritism would just be a different kind of unfairness.
There's a whole Para-Olympics Games event and from there minor para-games for a reason and I never said he shouldn't be allowed to compete
. What I emphasized in bold was that he is in a different category before my eyes.
I don't understand your point of view I should have said. Like I said, athletes like Oscar Pistorius have replacement prosthetic limbs. This fighter does not. How is not being able to injure a hand an advantage if he can't use the hand at all?
Nah, you can still say "you don't get my point at all"
any time, because that may happen regularly
. It was the word "ridiculous" you used that was out of ordinary coming from you. No worries.
The disadvantages are obvious and hugely dominant over advantages, of course
, but to highlight my idea he belongs to a different category, I pointed one
advantage(it doesn't need to be a big one, but definetely a difference). What I mean is. He only fights with one hand. He is a specialist in fighting with only one hand. We can't compare his performance lacking a hand (his 100%) with the performance of a two hand fighter fighting with a hurt/broken hand, like Vitor did. The second does not train to fight with only one hand + he will be in pain. It would be like enter in a face slapping fight with a blind in a dark room.
