The guy with no arms would stand there and kick him in the head all match. 'No arms' wins. Actually, under the rules of the UFC, 'no legs' wins. Under Pride rules 'no arms' wins.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Under UFC rules, the guy with no arms wouldn't be allowed to kick the downed opponent. So, unless he has one hell of a guard, he couldn't really defend himself on the ground. He would literally have to fall into a deep triangle choke, without added arm pressure needed. Actually... a regular guard wouldn't even work, because the no legs dude would be sick at passing guard.

Under Pride rules, you would figure that the no arms guy could soccer kick no legs, and stomp him out. However, he still runs the risk of being taken to the ground.

I have been thinking about this though... it would be VERY hard for a person with no legs to keep good ground control... and it would also be very hard to hold a person with no arms down on the mat. So, even if he does get a takedown. No arms would probably be able to roll over and over and get back up.

This is a match that I have got to see.

Now we just have to find the two fighters. Or maybe the UFC can talk Bisping and Ortiz into 'taking one for the team'

It's funny you mention this, because Kyle Manard, mentioned above, is trying to get a liscense to fight MMA now.

lol, not gona happen. I admire the guy, he really succeeded with his disability in grappling. But fighting is another story. He will be totally helpless.

Kyle Maynard vs Shogun, under Pride Rules. Who wins? Would also be a treat to see Kyle Maynard vs Heath Herring under Pride Rules.

Omg, thats so terrible... >.< They would just kick him around like a ball.

In all honesty it would be so weird to wrestle a guy like that. The guy coming at you on all fours like a dog with a human head, jumps on your face spider or something... sounds like something out of a horror flick.

Default Re: In a MMA match, a fighter with no legs vs one with no arms

Well, here's the thing. He wants to fight amateur MMA in the state of Georgia. In the league, these is no strikes on the ground allowed other than punches to the body. Basically it's RING's rules. This actually creates an unfair advantage for Kyle, because at no time can his opponent strike him unless it's a punch to the body. Who the **** wants to take a fight where they are running around the ring from a guy crawling on stumps that they can't hit?

Maynard has actually competed in submission grappling, and does very well. He's impossible to submit unless it's a choke basically. And he's fighting 130 pound skinny ass rails, while he has a full and muscular torso.

And honestly, the first the thing I thought of when I heard about this was seeing Peter Aerts run across the ring and punt him into the 5th row of seats.
