    Damn, that sounds horrible. Best of luck to Mitch, hope to see him in the Octagon soon. Loved his sub vs Raging Al.

    That's pretty scary. I go to a chiropractor before I fight and I'm always afraid I might get messed up while being adjusted lol

    insanely random - stupid unfortunate. One of those things NOBODY expects to happen... or even thinks of for that matter. Good luck to the dude, that's all I can say.

    Wow, never heard of this happening. I'd freak out if it happened to me I'm sure.

    Anyone dumb enough to touch either of those two things when they make a living using their body deserves what they get.

    Agreed. I wonder if he popped a few echinacea pills to speed the recovery.

    I guess his chances of recovering in time were about as good as finding a needle in a haystack?
