Urban Legend *Officially* Debunked: Alleged Palhares Heel Hook Victim Was Actually an Injured Mexican Military Cop

(The party is always always popping when Paul Harris is fighting.)

Astute reader Johnnyozone22 sent us a link today that officially confirms our suspicions that the gruesome photo of an alleged Rousimar Palhares leg break victim that made the rounds this week was a fake.

Well, the photo itself is real, it’s just that the unnamed man in the pic isn’t purported former Palhares heel hook victim Isaiah Ordiz. It’s actually a triage photo of an injured Mexican police officer who was injured in a gun fight outside of a Matamoros, Tamaulipas police station last week.

One bit of evidence that helped propel the manufactured story was the name of the alleged injury victim. According to reports, the dude in the photo is Isaiah Ordiz, who actually is a jiu-jitsu competitor. The problem is, Ordiz was a white belt back in 2010, so it’s very unlikely that he competed with Paul Harris last week in a random grappling competition.

It’s okay, Toquinho. We still think you’re a badass. Props to your PR team for arguing your case for a title shot. *slow clap*

If you have the stomach for it, you can check out the photo in question below..

Why is CP ignoring all the complaints about their site^ I dont get'll get replies in regards to other things but they completely turn a blind eye to the complaints and suggestions. Very ignorant.

Actually, looking again, I think the kneecap is actually *maybe* still there.
PS - CagePotato . . . My last post didn't contain the paragraph breaks that I had to ghetto in there with '*'s. Is this a glitch or are you really on a mission to make it impossible to post a comment that would benefit from a break in thought.
If so, I might just start leaping to Xeno-ish notions about you guys wanting more individual comments rather than constructed comments with multiple thoughts. It's obviously too soon to tell. Maybe this comment's breaks will work fine. I'm just till torquino'd about the edit button being gone and the slideshow (or whatever it is you call the monstrosity of a pic viewer).

Lol @ Clyde . . . And Til - yeah Skyrim guards are such pussies. If they're not telling me to keep my hands to myself, they're trying to get me to make them an 'ale' or some summon a goddamn bed.
Seriously, though. Jesus. So, his patella is prolly just GONE. Close range or very choked '00' Buck or a slug right to the knee, severing all insertions in that joint. Hip flexors (or something) forcing his femur to stick up like that with no attachment at the knee.
Jesus titty-fucking Christ.
Anybody who actually knows what they're talking about (beyond my ten year old EMT Basic) have any theories for 'fun'?

Gunfight? This looks more like he had an arrow to the knee....and tried to rip it out. No wonder all those guards in skyrim are traumatized

I still choose to believe that the Toquinho is a mythical creature, who is there in spirit every time a leg is broken. And if you leave it under your pillow when you go to sleep, he will leave a shiny nickel in its place for when you wake.
And pull off your other leg while he's there.

I can't believe how incredibly stupid someone must be to believe that a leg lock could have caused that picture. If you're not trolling on this one then, you're sincerely stupid.

bootystar, go to your room... kick off the shoes, socks, get comfy bro..... grab your spoon, lighter, and little plastic baggy with a 4 leaf clover on it. Spend some time with yourself, no biggie, we will be here when you get back... If you get the urge and decide to crawl around and grab your phone, go to the X's in your contacts, right underneath xavier-club, you will find a guy named Xeno, hit him up, you guys have a lot to talk about. See you on the other side.

the flatulence of a woman spins the cranks of a man, the cranks & the span work well to the smell of the powder & the bummer of KY & the tipdrill & the visa slide on the reach of the ledge in the city so glad to here tidings & skidmarks or the herricano of your mellow meow but greatest of wonders, hip check cashed bank swank penthouse swag, skinning cats with the tongue leave more fun to be done, angels cry for mercy as the teeth bite to a trickle well done howling drat & the raft, wiggle & hollywoods calling my name

pffft! A hockey player would get a few stitches and be ready for the bell at the start of the next round,
GistoftheFist- February 1, 2012 at 7:21 pm
A gun fight did all that? Was it a freakin howitzer?
bootystar- February 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm
training & hrt is one thing but adding a fight exposes a dangerous curve that often gets licked
Japanadian- February 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Yazloz18- February 1, 2012 at 3:54 pm
I just got out of the shower and didn't have my glasses on so the bone kinda looked like his penis. That would have been way better
Lopes- February 1, 2012 at 3:49 pm
Really? That needed to be debunked? I know Palhares is strong but come on, man.
skeletor- February 1, 2012 at 3:46 pm
Figures. Mexicans who aren't cutting grass or working the lettuce fields are lazy as fuck. Thats how I knew the story wasn't true.
Did J. Jones replace Danga? If so it looks like CP is finally adressing some of the issues plaguing this site.
TerryEtimFrozenNTime- February 1, 2012 at 3:41 pm
I'm still not convinced but oh well.
