Kyle Maynard, a born quadruple amputee, who through a “No Excuses” life philosophy has become a nationally-ranked wrestler, strength record-holder, ESPY award-winner, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, best-selling author, and MMA fighter.
“A Fighting Chance” is a vivid, character-driven story unlike any before it. Not only has Maynard learned to live life independently and without prosthetics, in the film he plans to fight in an official Mixed Martial Arts match – a highly controversial and dangerous goal - the film brings us to ask the question: what is a disability? Should there be regulations against MMA fighting when such high risk is involved? The film ends with the climactic fight that will change Kyle’s life forever.
Maynard’s story is remarkable, and we especially think you’ll be touched by his work with wounded warriors, whom he calls “these heroes of mine." Plus, keep an eye out for a cameo by the USO’s own Sloan Gibson!
