Default MMA: Holeve (Down Syndrome) vs Steffan (Cerebral Palsy)

This should be interesting. catdaddy, I'm expecting a post fight analysis.





Quote:
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters are known for their tough mentality and stop-at-nothing attitudes, so it’s no surprise that even though Garrett “G Money” Holeve has Down syndrome, he has muted his doubters and is fighting his way into the cage.

On November 8, Holeve will enter the cage for his first sanctioned fight against David “Cerebral Assassin” Steffan. The fight between Holeve and Steffan, a former Special Olympian who was born with cerebral palsy, has been approved by Spire Sanctioning – an amateur MMA sanctioning body – and is being sponsored by Fighting for Autism.

The fighters’ home states of Florida and Nebraska would not sanction the fight so they must travel to Missouri. A campaign to change the legislation in Florida is underway, but for now, Holeve’s main focus is his upcoming fight.

Something about this just seems wrong. I don't think this is a good idea

If this lasts more than 2 rounds I will be surprised.

Yeah, this is rather unseemly and reeks of exploitation.

It's always a bit sketchy if certain states don't or won't sanction a match, but it does end up getting sanctioned by some other unknown entity. That being said, I know these two fighters are anxious to compete and I'm glad to see them get a bout to show what they can do. If the promotion is giving proceeds to charity then that is even better. If it is a purely for profit venture then it reeks of side show status which isn't good. I think it is a positive as long as the welfare of both fighters is first and foremost.

I doubt I have much analysis for you, talorssc, at least until I see the tape ex post facto!
