I love how you think Bonnie. I am 1/2 and 1/2 on this. I feel what a great spirit and heart he has to want to fight, and I adore that he loves the sport to that degree. However my nurturing side feels scared what if he gets hurt or feels embarrassed if defeated. I also feel bad for whoever is fighting him. I know I would feel like a bully if it were me.. Maybe I am just over analyzing this one, but its a tricky moral one in my eyes...

I don't know how they are going to pick the guy to fight him (if they haven't already), but maybe his opponent is going to be a grappler/wrestler more than a standup striker. I watched one of his wrestling videos and he seemed to hold his own. Have y'all really looked at his head? Looks like he could take some shots.

I don't really think this is something he should pursue--competitive/pro mma, unless they start an mma organization with people who are in similar physical situations such as his.

Fighting a fully-limbed person in mma given the striking, kicks, etc... is just not realistic. I do agree with Chuck that it wouldn't be fair to his competitors and I agree with everyone who said this could be very dangerous for him. But I'm not opposed to him getting this one fight, like I said, if another fighter is willing and they are super diligent in refereeing.

This way he gets to try it and test himself and see for himself that it's not realistic for him to fight against a fully-limbed person in mma. Which, might in turn, get him thinking about starting mixed martial arts fighting for people with limited limbs. It's not impossible; look at everything he's accomplished so far with the curve ball life threw him.

I don't want to see him get hurt, but I say, give him this one chance.

What will we all say when he goes out there and chokes a man out? He is strong and I bet his stubbs have more power then alot of men. So I would not be surprised to see him hold his own. But I agree about the rule issue. It is not fair.

If Obama can get away with comaparing his bowling game to the Special Olympics, then I do not feel ashamed for laughing at that joke.
