    How could he actually fight anyway? He can't fucking hit anything, I know of no submissions that he could do, headbutting is illegal and you don't get points in MMA for a pin.

    I admire the guy's heart, and admit that he's easily a better athlete than I'll ever be, but this has got to be a joke.

    Is it possible to win via field goal?
    LOL!!!

    I almost made a joke about the "gloves-required" rule, but that would be in poor taste.
    Is it too early to make a "Lay 'n' Pray" joke?

    Who the hell is going to step up to fight this man? Utter lose-lose situation. If you lose, you just got beat by a cripple, if you win you just beat the hell out of a cripple. Who wants either on their fight record?

    I just don't see how in a Jitz situation, having no arms or legs can work for you..... at all.... although it does negate half guard, toe locks and heel hooks

    *runs in shame!*

    I fully understand how he can wrestle/grapple. After all, it's already been said how strong he is compared to his opponents and I'd imagine that chokes are the only viable submissions against him. I just don't get how he'll be able to deal with a striking situation.

    By what methods can he win? He can't strike or submit, he wrestles but what can he do after he has taken them down? I'm so confused to how this is possible.

    no elbows - you can't even armbar this superior fighting mutant.

    Jokes aside, this guy's got a pair of brass ballz.

    I wish they would have special rules in the MMA match that would allow headbutts. I'm guessing that the meanest strike he could do other than that would be a shoulder-punch.

    I respect him and admire his courage, but have serious questions about the logistics of the fight.

    I understand how he can take his opponent down, but as has been said before, what exactly will he do at that point? He cannot hit his opponent, and I cannot think of any submissions that he would be able to apply. Would his goal simply be to hold down his opponent to win a decision?

    Also, I am curious if he is capable of covering his head to protect himself. If he ends up on the bottom, would the fight have to be immediately stopped because he cannot "intelligent defend himself"?

    I hope that I am missing something and that Kyle Maynard will prove me and all the other doubters wrong in this endeavor, just as he has in so many others. I am also very concerned though.
