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.
