Do you think we are a bunch of douchebags because we are all hiding behind these weird usernames?

How do you properly shave your balls? That's a two handed chore in my book. One that holds the razor and the other to stretch the coin purse?

How difficult is it to go about your everyday life? Getting ready, chores, shopping, driving, masturbating, ladies, playing video games, cooking? Ever thought about getting a little hook hand?

What was your inspiration for the 'Queerman' superhero theme, and how did you get the dog on-board?

Do you believe Art Jimmseron belongs in the UFC Hall of Fame?

What happens with all those extra gloves when you fight? Do you just have a stack of left handed MMA gloves lying around your house? Can I have them?

What ever happened with the Proving Ground contest? Did cagepotato tell you that the prize was 'in the mail' until you eventually gave up on it?

How do you deal with the criticism of being a professional fighter with only one hand?

What challenges, if any, does your handicap create in training for a fight?

Do you think all the concerns people express about you fighting with your handicap are fair?

Do you feel like people only want to ask you about your handicap and don't give you enough credit for your skills as a fighter?

Do you realistically think there is a chance that Dana White would ever give you a fight in the UFC?

How do you see your fight with Keon Caldwell going down? Do you think you'd have the skill to defeat him and bitchslap this comments section in one night?

Do you feel you face more adversity as an MMA fighter due to only having one hand, or by the more obvious hurdle of being a lightweight?

Yes or No: this is a video interview only because it would take for fucking ever for you to type out your replies?
crappiefloper- July 17, 2013 at 4:18 pm
Have you ever been,"HANDcuffed"?

Do you think if you lose, it will have a negative impact on other amputee athletes in combat sports? I mean would a person become less likely to be granted a license to fight?

What would you say to the idea that taking a fight against you Is a lose lose situation for your opponent

How often do you get, "no. You're not an mma fighter!" at the bar

Do you think Dana White and company will ever consider bringing you to the big leagues, and if it doesn't happen, how do you think that will affect your legacy?
crappiefloper- July 17, 2013 at 2:43 pm
Nick "Slot Machine" Newell, yes or no?

-cause they are sometimes refered to as,"one arm bandits" you see
crappiefloper- July 17, 2013 at 2:37 pm
do you feel that dumbasses like Aron Lee Ralston(the climber guy) give people with one arm a bad name?
Krezer- July 17, 2013 at 2:14 pm
Years ago you came to my jiu jitsu gym. When we rolled, you guillotine choked me with your one arm. It sucked bad and I wanted to know why you did that?

Have you ever gone lefty on a lady?

Which hand do you masturbate with?

Seriously, don't ask that.

Have you ever pulled your stump out from under a truck hood and start screaming?
crappiefloper- July 17, 2013 at 1:21 pm
Quick follow up to cman's Q... If you broke your hand, would your first thought be,"shit, how do I finish the fight" or ,"SHIT! How do I jack it" . Please be honest
crappiefloper- July 17, 2013 at 1:15 pm
in the picture, your holding a dog. is this the same dog that chewed off your arm? if so, did you put that little cape on it as retribution?
cman- July 17, 2013 at 1:14 pm
What would you do if you broke your one hand and couldn't strike or lock in a sub?
