I agree completely. I'm all for equality as well, but I just don't understand what the hell this guy is actually trying to accomplish.
How can he win this fight? I don't care how strong he is for his weight class, there is no way he will be able to effectively strike, I also can not think of any submissions he could pull off. If he does manage to get his opponent to the ground he will only be stalling the inevitable, because he won't be able to do anything with him on the ground. I'm wondering if the ref will still say "I'm gonna need to see you work." and threaten to stand the fight up.
I don't know if Maynard is going out there just to prove to himself that he is tough or something like that, but it is completely ridiculous. Honestly, this is disrespectful to the sport. If you want to be apart of this sport you have to be able to compete, if you can't compete, then, to put it bluntly, get the **** out. This is like a hockey game where one team doesn't know how to skate, its a waste of a game and the other team's time.
And $10 says his opponent wins by armbar.
