(Fight starts at the 3:50 mark. I know, it’s no “mumblegumblemurglegurgle” but I promise that the next one will be funnier.)
Because we feel obligated to pass along whatever disgusting, pro-wrestling inspired, or plain brilliant videos we come across on a daily basis — often regardless of their relationship to MMA — here’s a video of UFC veteran Rob “The Rosedale Reaper” Kimmons breaking his ankle in three places during his headlining fight with Tyler Stinson at ‘Epic Fight Night 1′ yesterday. While the break itself isn’t all that gruesome when you’ve
masturbated to witnessed such horrific moments as Corey Hill vs. Dale Hartt, it’s what leads up to it that truly sets this gem apart from most MMA injury videos out there.
Just over 30 seconds into the first round, Kimmons and Stinson land simultaneous left hooks, sending both fighters crashing to the mat. Murder boner status: Half-mast. But as Kimmons tumbles to the canvas, he does so with his ankle twisted beneath him — think Cro Cop vs. Gonzaga, then tuck it into your belt. The presiding referee fails to notice this, of course, and allows a wobbled Stinson to slinky his way over to a clearly down-for-the-count Kimmons and drop a few more unwarranted punches before calling it a day. Murder boner: Achieved. Mazzagatti disciple: CERTIFIED.
We’d like to wish Rob the best of luck on his road to recovery, as well as ensure him that by the time he is retired, MMA refs will still be mostly incompetent when it comes to protecting their fighters. We’ve never been known for our bedside manner.
