Kyle Maynard's Documentary

For those who haven't seen, there's a documentary about Kyle Maynard, the collegiate wrestler amputee who competed in MMA, called "A Fighting Chance." It's available on hulu for those who want to check it out.

There are a few segments where they talk about the pre-fight buildup and the smack talk that went on on the internet, and I think the fight testified to many of the concerns the internet trolls had.

Still, I want to say this: I have a ton of respect for Renzo, but the way that Maynard's camp handled that fight was irresponsibly stupid. They didn't have a plan for the jab? Seriously. The documentary points out that they knew an opponent could stick and move and he would have problems, and they didn't have a real plan for it? Seriously.

I'm just disappointed. I expected more from the coaching in the sport, though I never cease to be amazed by the incompetence.

I know this is gonna sound horrible but this kid is turning himself into a Circus Freak. I understand the kid wants to try to prove people wrong but he will NEVER be a fighter or anyhting other than a joke if he enters the ring or cage again. I feel sorry for him and everything but I wouldn't take it easy on him at all if he's dumb enough to get in there and fight and think people will take it easy on him. I hope he finds something he loves and can prove people wrong, other than MMA.

Not having a plan for the jab?

its a shame that js9234 would have to precede his response with "i know this is going to sound horrible"... It shouldn't sound horrible to anyone. What could their plan possibly be for a fighter without no arms or legs? That was sad all the way around...
