Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Must-See: Franky Van Hove, the One-Legged MMA Fighter

Our buddy Robert at FreeFightVideos sent us these strange clips with this note: "This is as far as I know the first physically handicapped MMA fighter. His name is Franky Van Hove. His nickname is "The submission King" and he hails from Holland." Damn. Mad respect for trying? We can’t find a pro record for Van Hove, but apparently he’s also a competitive grappler, where he’s had a little more success. You can watch him choke out a couple of opponents here and here.

one of the guys i train with nick dioneada an amateur fighter. fought a guy with one and 3/4 arms. we had to put a boxing glove on his nub because it was just one bone and possibly could have poked nick in the eye. nick keylocked the nub and ripped the glove off.

The guy fights out of team perfect in Belgium, not Holland, his oponent in the second video fights out of team topfighter.
I would never fight a one legged man it's just not fair..

Whoever actually let this guy fight needs to be beaten. That was just messed up. I couldn't even watch the whole thing.

This guy could never be a real fighter. I get he wants to try it and he loves the sport, but seriously. He has zero balance, he would drop at every solid bunch that connected. If the fight goes to the ground, how is it fair that he has two legs to try and lock leg locks in, but the guy he is fighting only has one leg to try and put a submission on. Not to mention if you kicked him in the leg enough, he just wouldnt be able to stand, then what do you do drop to your knees and fight at that level?

Keith Miner is the 1st pro mma fighter who is also an amputee. Fights again June 6th, in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He also won the last NAGA here in Dallas for his division. People were getting pissed when he submitted them. Check him out because he is proof that even with a disability you can still achieve goals. He went straight to pro because no one gave him a chance to fight ammy because he had one hand.

@Curtis: Just ignore pee. The REAL question of the day:

Give him the rematch? I would love to see BJ retired back into his momma's arms?

Question of the day:

What would be worse? Fighting a chick in MMA and losing, or fighting a one-legged man in MMA and losing?

How can somebody bash somebody else for bad grammAR(not er) when they can't spell or use proper grammar themselves? I guess that it "don't" matter if you do it right?
