The fact that he wants to try things is great. But this smells alot like attention whoring. My money is that he contacted the media about it , and that is just fucking weak.
Its like people who survive cancer then decide to pull themselves up a mountain so some other crap to "raise money". If they just did it for them selves then I would be impressed.
must add that the first few people who did things like that seemed ok but its just getting old now.
That is exactly the point I was trying to make, IIF, but certain people are too retarded to see the other side of the argument, even when it's been put in front of their faces.
at least he's out there trying to be somebody. he's just trying to work with what god gave him... and everybody is trashing the hell out of him for it--they're just jealous that they weren't born feebs.

first in answer to devil's question:
No, he wasn't a dick at all. It was a little weird for me trying to grapple with him because he uses his arms very differently than I'm obviously used to. He also was very good at teaching one of our new guys how to finish a single leg take down.
As for his ability: I confirmed he's a good grappler and wrestler, and that given Georgia's rules for Amateur MMA I don't think it'd be that bad for him to fight since he can't get gnp'd to the head. He can cover up enough even if they were allowed to punch him while they were standing to get in for a takedown attempt. Basically, I think he could at least manage to make it interesting.
Lastly...to be fair, I don't believe his attorneys were asking for any modified rules. The article just pointed out that it could be viewed that he's always on the ground. Having met him, I don't think he'd actually ask for the existing rules to be modified. If he indeed has, then I missed that.
If so, I say let him fight. The "always on the ground" argument is a bad one. Other than that, any athlete designs his play and how he uses his body for some ruleset.

As many others have noted, he would find it very difficult to get a fight anyway, because, you know, nubs. But that's not a licensing board's problem, that's Maynard's problem.
Yeah, that's it. Someone go get a chainsaw & come visit me so then I can get some more attention.
