Double Amputee To Make Cage-Fighting Debut

by | 25th, March 2009

IT’S not every day you get to report on two sport-related amputee stories, but – praise be! – today is that day. Earlier, we told you how an amputee Royal Marine had pranked David Beckham.

Now comes the news that Kyle Maynard, a congenital amputee who was born with stumps for legs and arms, will make his Mixed Martial Arts debut next month in Auburn, Alabama. Only in America, folks.

Maynard was previously denied a license to fight by the Georgia Athletic & Entertainment Commission, but it seems they have changed their minds.

Now that’s a fight we don’t want to see. Okay, we’re a little bit curious to see exactly what moves this guy has.

Bring on Obama for the Spaz-Down!
