Yeah, I'm not really an inovator. JJ already proved that you can become a world champion grappler and Baxter Humby proved you can be a muay thai world champ. When I was a kid my family thought it important for me to watch and meet Jim Abbott so I could never set a lower bar for myself or feel sorry for myself. I was never told I shouldn't try anything bc I only have one hand and it would be too hard. Every sport I played I've excelled at due to my work ethic. I truly consider myself lucky to have been given such a gift. One day not to far from now you will be talking about me as a top level fighter and not just a good fighter for someone w/ one hand. Until then I'll be in the gym preparing for that day haha thanks for reading my rantings.
