Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson was pretty big. Not as big as I thought tough, only 6. Jeff having a 74 inch reach really surprised me.

I have no legs but I want to play soccer in the Premiere League. Surely they should accommodate me, no?

There is a point where pandering has to give way to honesty. "Jimmy you're a great kid and everyone is inspired by your drive and dedication. But I cant see you ever becoming a sniper for the Navy Seals given that your blind".

Yeah it was really dumb. I remember when Maynard was looking for an opponent and they couldn't find one. They finally found some scrub with a losing record, and the guy didn't even attempt to fight Maynard, he just jabbed at him and circled. The fight made no sense and was really disappointing.

I also remember seeing training videos on Maynard before the fight and he was just hitting a pad on the ground and I was thinking "wtf can he do to hurt his opponent?"
It should have never been sanctioned looking back at it. The fight isn't even listed on Sherdog.
