Ruptured Testicle from groin kick

According to Dave Meltzer's Wrestling OBesrver -
Blake Franklin, an MMA fighter who fought on a Friday night show in Shreveport, had emergency surgery at Chritus Schumpert Highland to repair a ruptured testicle from a groin kick. Franklin said his testicle was the size of his hand from an accidental kick. the doctors told him the force of the blow was like taking a 100 mile per hour fastball directly. He said when he got the kick, he threw up in his mouth. He couldn't tape because he couldn't breathe. Opponent Nick Reed was awarded the win, but the commission may overturn it

wow, i think thats probably the worst thing ive ever heard, my balls felt psychosomatic pain just from reading that

Walk it out, rock it out and lock it out...
Dope it, rope it and grope it...
Wrap it, tap it and scrap it...

Thats the shit that happens. I cant believe that anyone is surprised. There is a reason why thai's wear steal cups. I took two different blows to the nuts that cracked my plastic cup completely in two. Moral of the story is buy a steal cup.
