Kyle Maynard's MMA debut

Most crossfitters 'round these parts probably aren't unfamiliar with Kyle Maynard. He's supposed to make his MMA debut Saturday in Auburn, Alabama.

Good MMAJunkie article about it that answers a lot of questions WFS: http://mmajunkie.com/news/14658/cong...-mma-debut.mma

It's interesting that because of how he was born, he can't get kicked because he is at all times considered a "downed fighter". His grappling seems to be pretty fierce if you guys have seen the video of him kicking Jon Gilson's *** (haha). He is, by all accounts, damned strong. I would love to see it just to see how it goes down. He is inspirational.

Re: Kyle Maynard's MMA debut

I wondered what had happened to him, I knew about the license refusal and just sort of lost track of his story...

He's fantastic, one of those people who defines "hard work." Best of luck to him!

Re: Kyle Maynard's MMA debut

Here's another article posted today on ESPN:

My apologies if posted somewhere else. I figured the Kyle Maynard MMA thread was the best place.

Re: Kyle Maynard's MMA debut

Sucks that he lost, but the guy he was up against fought a smart fight.

Congrats to Kyle though. This is just another chapter in his life's story. Better things are sure to come.
