Amputee Loses MMA Debut

Congenital Amputee Kyle Maynard made his MMA debut last night in an unsanctioned event in Auburn, Alabama. (Georgia would not sanction the fight therefore it was moved to Alabama.) Despite having no arms or legs, Maynard built up an impressive 35-16 record as a wrestler at Collins Hill High School.

Special rules for the bout included Fry’s inability to kick Maynard since he is considered a downed opponent at all times. Maynard was not allowed to strike because they could not fit gloves over his stumps.

Unfortunately for Kyle he dropped a decision to Bryan Fry 30-27 on all three cards.

Here is a play-by-play of the fight that was posted to the Underground by catchascatchcant.
