Blessings, I hope and I pray that you get to compete, it's the only right thing to do. I'm disgusted that they denied you to compete as a MMA fighter. Don't be embarrassed, it's THEY who should be. shame on them. ;( I'm so sorry,people are jerks. That picture of you looks like it should be on a 'Men who are Knock-Out-Handsome'...calendar! You sure look qualified to me. ;) I'm so very proud of you for creating a Foundation to help promote MMA within the special needs community. the world needs more dear hearted and passionate people like you, and not be denied the right to do what makes you happy. Garret, remember God is with you, and He will help you, trust in Him. He wants you to be all that He made you to be, and with Him on your side you can't lose. Jesus Loves you. Blessings always Garrett. ok, Florida State Boxing Commission, please DO THE RIGHT THING, and give Garrett a break, for Heavens sake. what do you think God thinks of the way you are treating Him, one of His children whom He Loves? well, He Loves you too,so show Him some Love back by dumping your cease and desist orders that make it so he can't do what he loves to do, which is totally legal. thank you if you do. ;)
