Garrett Holeve, MMA and Down’s syndrome “I took that punch as a man”

So, I’ve got a range of interests – but it’s not often that these two co-incide….




Garrett Holeve is an MMA fighter with Down’s syndrome. It’s a really interesting case and worth watching the video, which throws a whole load of things up (it’s an American video and it’s always interesting to see the UK/US divide in acceptable things to say about disability).  I’m not ashamed that I shed tears when he talks about taking the first punch.
