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?

Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

But he was in the Octagon, amped up and ON during the fight. Once the round was over, ouch, in E.T. voice!

That's the diff-er-ence.

This neither answered the OP nor included any thought. I'm guessing you don't do much thinking. I'm guessing you just get to doing.

Well take into account that there are half a million people watching, you're fighting to put bread on the table and you're probably flowing with adrenaline considering you're in a fight. That said, Varner is tough as shit for fighting through that.

Varner has always been tough as nails. Eating a dozen Barboza kicks before KOing him, brawling with Abel. Guy is a top talent as well.
