That's a fair point, but unless I missed a memo he has nothing to do with creating Georgias wierd amateur MMA rules, and as I pointed out the rules themselves really aren't offering him any advantages that somone else couldn't take.

No head kicks allowed. (at least they aren't listed as permitted, although they also don't show up under forbidden. Can any GA types clarify that)

every moron can see its not a good idea to let him fight people when he has no limbs.
you can be as political correct as you like but this is just common sense: no hands/arms= no boxing.
he has done these kind of actions before and im starting to think this guy is some dramawhore.
not sure yet.
yeah, here we go, website with also commerical for his book 'no excuses'.
i've made up my mind: dramawhore.
This boxing thing was publicity move.
So if someone scoots around on the floor of the ring/cage, but fails to make any contact, would you think the ref would not, at some point, stand the guy up and make him fight? If a ************ drops to his ass or knees to fight me, well, I could presumedly avoid the guy until the ref stood it up. What the **** would I do if fighting this guy? I can't hit him, I can't kick him, if I go to the ground with him, I can't armbar him or kneebar him, or heelhook him, or do any kind of ankle lock, or Kimura him, or omoplata him.....I think you get the point, or at least you should.

Usually I'm not too fond of the athletic commision's rulings on MMA, but in this case they got it right.
Last I heard, headkicks while standing were put back in the rules at some point while the rule changes were being passed.

The main problem is that everyone w/o a PC-brainwashed mind see how silly this situation is.
Some people in this world get it, that you play the hand that you're dealt. You don't demand that all of the rules are thrown out to make everyone "equal".
Besides, I'm sure that at least half of you are defending this guy just really want to get drunk and watch some big MMA'er play "Kick the [Kyle Maynard]".
green varrot for jim jude as soon as the rep is working again.
He has the correct approach.
What fucking rule are you talking about? The only rule is that you can't punch him in the face while standing, which you couldn't do anyways unless you are some sort of mishapen freak.
