advantage this advantage that, if he's good enough he should be allowed to fight. If he gets the absolute shit beaten out of him then it's his fault, what's with this society of hand-holding. If the kid can beat legitimate fighters and earn his way into the UFC he should be allowed, it is doubtful that he will be able to with such a disability but it shouldn't be the deciding factor. Maybe it's an advantage, maybe it makes him work harder than everyone else. Nobody feels sorry for Forrest when he lost his belt because he broke his hand, let the kid fight and his record will speak for itself. If he leaves a fight bloodied and broken will people feed bad? I wouldn't, he made his choice to fight, he alone gets to deal with consequences and reap the benefits.
I agree with the general idea he should be granted the right if he is good enough, but from the POV of a fan only
. Anyway, a line shall exist somewhere in this regard as many others are there dividing countless categories.
Depending on the "consequences", the quotes I've bolded are not what happens in reality when we are speaking of an official sport, event, institution or company. Commissions have to be strict and evolve very carefully when deciding to permit or not something out of ordinary, because when lawyers
come into play, it will never be like "that's his fault he wanted to fight like that"
. Sh!t normally hits the fan and the "told you so" choir will sing "told you so...".
In a parallel example, lots of aircraft pilots (not only airline pilots) lose their medical licenses every year (others applicants never get one) against their will even when the possibility of something bad to happen isn't that bad in our eyes and that is just because the medical board will get responsibility for any consequence that could be linked to a lame judment call. Leave it to the pilot, he'll continue to fly through lots of impairing conditions and hope no doctor find out about them. Pilots, fighters and other professionals are much alike when it comes to career halting issues.
