A video shared by UFC Heavyweight Derrick Lewis shows a handicapped boy remove both of his prosthetic legs, before unleashing the mother of all MMA beatdowns on his opponent in a street brawl.
In the video, the handicapped boy appears to have the measure of his tall but cagey opponent. Halfway through the fight he turns things up a notch, sitting down to remove both of his artificial legs.
Somehow, the handicapped heavy-hitter manages to move even quicker on his hands, feinting, dodging, and taunting his able-bodied adversary. Tired of striking from the ground, he eventually lands a takedown, and ground-and-pounds his opponent before the fight is broken up by a passing motorist.
Despite his disadvantage, the boy’s fight sense is on point. Quick head movement, artful dodging, and knowing when to strike mean that if the contest were in the UFC octagon, the disabled kid would probably grab a comfortable win.
In a longer version of the video, the boy shows off more of his stand-and-bang boxing skills.
Successful handicapped fighters are not unknown in the professional MMA scene – one example is congenital amputee Nick Newell, with his impressive record of 14 wins and two losses in the lightweight division, despite fighting with one arm.
