Kyle Maynard First MMA Fight Video

I just found the fight on YouTube and added it. It's the first link. Enjoy!

I also found 2 pretty good vids.

The first one is an interview with the Associated Press where he discusses his upcoming MMA match. It kinda makes you feel bad if you made fun of him. The second is a video of him choking some guy out at a NAGA event. I'll tell you what, his a quickly, suave little fighter there. Check them out.

yeah, but also you have to respect the fact that the Fry guy didn't pound him. i think by rule he wasn't allowed to kick him, because he is already on his knees. I mean, it probably should have been a draw but, it's not like the guy that won is hanging his hat on this victory.

-.-'

I gget the mentality that the handicapable should be able to do anything, but this is too much. The dude's gonna get smoked. He'll eventually fight someone who isnt forgiving like that kid and he's going to pounce on him and destroy him. It's one thing to try adn push yourself to overcome adversity, it's totally another thing to be that ******* stupid about it.

Meh I say let him fight if he wants. The worse that can happen is that he'll get his ass beat and the ref will jump in which happens to able bodied fighters all the time. And its not like he's fighting professionally either so he'll probably stick to fighting amateurs with losing records which could actually make for some interesting fights imo.

I respect the guy for his desire, and that he's gotten even this far, but the truth is it's really quite unfair.

Not for him, for the guys fighting him. This is the ultimate lose-lose situation for his opponents. If they win the fight, they get no credit, after all, they beat a guy with no freaking limbs, and maybe they get called a jerk and a bully if they really beat him down. If they lose the fight, well, you lost to a guy with no limbs, so what does that say about your fighting ability????

This reminds me of a couple years ago there was some talk about Tito Ortiz fighting Dana White, and I think there was some progress to making it happen when Tito called it off. That was the smartest thing he ever did, it was lose-lose for him. Same thing here, to a much greater degree. I wouldn't fight this Maynard guy for any amount of money, there's nothing in it for his opponents.

There is no way he is ever gonna get somebody down, he cant catch them, every opponent will to the same thing and I honestly dont see how he could ever win unless his opponent truly wanted to give him a chance and let him get the take down, it really should have been a grappling contest cause that was painful to watch.

There's videos of Maynard's grappling matches on youtube. He can submit people and has crazy defenses.
I was annoyed watching this fight because even though Maynard's opponent had a game plan (keep outside and keep punching) I kept waiting for him to at least move in and try to pound out Maynard. Sure, he was there to win but the dude was fighting a guy WITH NO HANDS OR FEET. You can't really "win" a match like that so why not engage?

The video of him tapping out his opponent in the grappling tournament is also included in the link at the top of this post.

I'm going to go to hell for laughing. I'm sorry, but an mma fight is absurd. No one is going to engage him in a full on grappling match, bjj is nearly useless on him [as seen in the grappling match... how are you going to triangle him?], and he's a sucker for strikes and, most probably, guillotines.

Really, this is a Silva v. Leites scenario every time.
