wait, how is it "mma" if all they are doing is punching eachother? wouldnt that just be wheelchair boxing?
Your too quick for me Kevo...
I saw the thread title and started searching to post this...
Buttt... you beat me too it.
I got ten bucks on Timmmmmmay.
this is embarrassing.
Watching two people fight in a wheel chair inside a cage doesn't do anything for the sport, the fans or even the contestants.
how will they tap if they cant feel their legs?
Seriously...i guess i admire them following a dream or whatever but this is stupid
I saw this an laughed... I'm going to hell
Seriously though, those are good questions. I don't see how there could possibly be a grappling aspect of the fight. I mean, I'll give it a chance but it just seems like boxing to me.
I would understand if these athletes want to satiate their appetite to compete, but this, to me, is horrible. Too each his own, but I personally don't watch MMA cards to see competitors slug it out like street thugs. I'm always hoping to observe some amazing technique(s), e.g. footwork, striking, tdd, grappling, jj, sub defense...etc. This promotion can't showcase that.
I can't see how this is helpful to the sport and its validity. Blurgh.
meh i'm all for equality, i say good for them if they have enought participants for this, i'm sure the fighters themselves are just happy to be able to compete. I just wouldn't expect too much mainstream exposure for this. i mean they have adaptations of virtually every sport out there of disabled individuals, why not mma, just as long as they don't promote it as a freak show, have at it.
I don't know how I'd react to witnessing a guy get knocked out in his wheelchair, or out of his wheelchair.
