“Three Legged” Man Signed To Legacy FC

The world of MMA has opened to a broad range of disabled combatants who want a shot inside the cage.

For example, Nick Newell, a one-armed fighter, fought for the WSOF lightweight world title on NBC recently.

Now according to sources a one-legged fighter taking his shot with a new Legacy FC deal.

Heres what was said:

Betzold lost half of his left leg at the age of 6, after being poisoned by a lodger, staying with his family. Since then, he’s gone on to a decorated grappling career, eventually transitioning into an amateur MMA career. He went pro back in 2009. After a rocky 2-3 start as a pro, he’s gone on to win his last four straight, while that hasn’t been against the highest caliber of competition, it was enough to get him onto one of the larger stages for regional MMA in the US.

Heres what Betzold had to say:

“I generally have a chip on my shoulder. I’m kind of prejudiced against guys with all of their limbs, so I like to take ‘em off. I definitely go after those limbs because I’m mad at them. I’m kind of a bigot towards anyone with all of their limbs. I don’t even like my kids, cause they have two legs and two arms [laughs]. I’m just kidding. I would have more fights and more wins on my record, but the fact of the matter is guys are scared to fight me. I get fights set up and then the week of the fight, someone will pull out. That or they accept the fight for a few days, then they pull out. These guys are a bunch of pussies. I thought we were all supposed to be fighters. That’s what I’m dealing with.”
