    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How is possible?

    This raises so many question.

    What weightclass would he fight in?

    Does he wear gloves? ...where?

    How can he possibly defend chokes?

    But most of all: WHAT?

    You cant kick or knee him, as his knees are ALWAYS down. Wrestling is worlds apart from MMA.

    I can't believe how tenacious this kid is.

    He's been very vocal about wanting to fight MMA and has already been denied the chance (rightfully so) by an athletic commission before. http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...yle+Maynard%22

    To answer the weight class question, Maynard walks (crawls?) at about 125, but has said that he could move up to 135 if it would help him get an opponent. http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...yle+Maynard%22

    I really don't think any commisson or promoter in their right mind should ever let him fight, and I think this fight will probably fall through in the coming weeks. If he does actually manage to fight, it'll be entertaining as hell, but I can't imagine any possible way it would be anything less than a handicap beatdown. Not to mention how bad the backlash on the sport would be.

    I wasn't suggesting posting the video to show he could do it.

    I honestly see no way how this will be anything other than
    a) an absolutel massacre
    b) his opponent being very kind.

    Uhh.

    YouTube - Kyle Maynard @ NAGA

    I admit I don't know squat about what good submission grappling looks like.

    ...does he have any game?

    I see I'm behind the times. Apologies. Check his NAGA opponent's outfit. They really let people dress like that?

    Why aren't my posts being merged? Lame.

    Also, missing one leg is several orders of magnitude better than missing everything.
