From someone who has broken their ankle: Varner is not human
When I was 15 /16 I broke my ankle skateboarding in a similar way by rolling the ankle. When I felt the ankle roll I fell but it didn't feel much worse than a light sprain. When I tried to stand up however, I felt sharp blinding white pain and my shit immediately swelled up. Just putting any weight on it was out of the question.
That dude just fought with that shit what the fuck.
I can't believe Varner fought out that round and even more so I can't believe how calm he was post-fight even hopping over for the official decision.
I don't understand it honestly. I have had surgery on my right humerus from being taken down ending with it badly breaking requiring a steel rod put in and took that with no problems at all in a similar way to Varner.
The ankle though....I bitched out hard when I stood up and felt that pain how the hell does Varner not even seem much more than inconvenienced?
