    It's all gonna be in his floor game. That's where it'll be decided.

    Don't know, but trapping that guy would be a bear, and obviously you couldn't fight him standing up. On the other hand (don't say it), I don't see how he could punch. But hey, I'd be interested in seeing it.

    An interesting point in the article: whoever fights him is stuck in a no-win situation.
    Win, and you're the guy who beat up the amputee.
    Lose, and your the guy who got beat up by the amputee.

  8. MMA won't let you kick a man who's down. Is he considered "down" all the time? I mean, if not, one kick, right to the head... game over.

    EDIT: I predict he gets TKO'd due to strikes. He's wrestled. MMA fighters not only have submissions but strike on the ground as well. Even if he manages to take a guy down and grapple (which is the only change he has, which is pretty slim), he'd in for a rude suprise when somebody unleases a ground and pound.

    I thought this was an Onion article when I saw the thread title.

    He actually looks like a dog wrestling, going on all fours.
     
  16. Well I'm stumped.
     
  17. Sorry, that was terrible :p

    Yeah. Well you gotta give him a hand for trying.
     
  19. Yeah, at least he's starting off on the right foot, even though his competition will likely have a leg up on him when it comes to fighting.

    Overall, I think he'll be okay if he uses his head.
