As bizarre as it may sound, Zion Clark, a wrestler who was born with no legs, stunned the crowd at the Valley Center in San Diego, California in his pro MMA debut by securing a unanimous decision win over Eugene Murray at Gladiator Challenge: Seasons Beatings on Saturday.

No legs, no problem

Prior to becoming a professional MMA fighter, Clark was a collegiate wrestler. As expected, the 25-year-old relied on his grappling to pull off a victory over Murray, who had no birth disorder.

A short video clip shows how Clark brilliantly used his strong arms to takedown his opponent and capitalize on the ground.

An achiever

Aside from being a former collegiate wrestler and now full-pledged MMA fighter, Clark also holds the Guinness world record for the fastest person to walk on their hands. Sports has long been playing an important part in the 25-year-old’s life and he never let his disability get the better of him in his journey.

Clark’s inspiring story was featured in the Netflix documentary entitled, “Zion” which was released in 2020.

Clark doesn’t only represent persons with inborn disability but also those who doubt what their skills. With a legitimate win on his resume, Clark could be on course to making more history in combat sports.
