I would like to see him get a shot but I think some of the better strikers at LW will have a field day with that open left side. Can you imagine him fighting a guy like Melvin Guillard?
hell be the future champ for 155 pounds if there will be a disable category in ufc. Hopefully there will be like the paralympics.
Yes.. sure.. he has a disadvantage because all someone has to do is stay on the side.. he has a advantage because you can only armbar one arm. It's like that guy who had the arm and leg thing and all the opponent did to nullify him was stiff arm his head. It's just sad to see someone take advantage of the disadvantage.. then again for the disadvantage to flip it to a advantage, know that's a beautiful thing, but its just so much sadder for someone to take advantage of his disadvantage.
In my opinion, I don't think his opponents should hold back. He is a fighter, one arm or not, he is a fighter and should be treated fairly. Striking an opponent who was injured during a fight is one thing, but he is an able fighter, He shouldn't be given a pass. Wouldn't want to win with an opponent holding back would you now. @ IchokePeople, yeah I feel you, but I think that's what he needs, better opponents to improve his game. I'm not saying he's invincible, I think with experience and opportunity he has what it takes to be a solid player or maybe even a top tier in the division, then let's see where it takes him.
Was it sad to see Jose take advantage of the korean zombies dislocated shoulder?
Then there is the weight advantage ...minus the arm and musculature on the upper arm allows him to be bigger overall and may give him a slight power edge.
id like to see him in the UFC NOW.... he needs some REAL competition... and i dont think he'll find someone outside of the UFC that would give him serious problems... he's an animal man... He comes to FINISH... i love that ****!
Experience, my apologies. I accidentally clicked funny, when I meant to click sharp.
Oh hell yeah!
I'm not getting to be insensitive, but his disadvantaged arm seems to have a hook shape, should there bea glove on that or am i being silly
*I'm not trying to be..*
Satellite, I think that's a reasonable question, but my guess is that he's required to wear nothing other than the 1 glove.
He doesn't punch with it so i don't see any reason for him having to wear a glove. The only part of that arm he strikes with is his elbow...
If Dana wouldn't sign him in the near future, he should just continue what he does, polish his craft, win impressively and make waves, make the UFC come to him with a huge contract, Anyone who sees him irrelevant is a fool. This explosive kid is legit.
