Jared Hamman's Torn Hamstring and the Heart of a Warrior

Yes, my friends, that is what Jared Hamman's leg looked like last night after his fight against Michael Kuiper. It could be heard after the first round a reference in his corner to something in his leg being torn, and this is the visual representation of the pain he fought through before eventually being dropped and finished in the second round.

As Middle Easy reported earlier, Hamman tore his hamstring muscle badly in the first round during a takedown attempt roughly 2 minutes into the first round. "The Messenger" gamely fought on, even landing some decent counterstrike against Kuiper, but it was clear that he had lost all mobility on his feet, and Kuiper was able to exploit that on the way to his first UFC win.

Hamman has now lost three our of his last four in the Octagon, but he may be given one last opportunity to prove himself after his display of toughness last night. If not, he certainly can leave the organization holding his head high, having gone out on his shield like a warrior. Look at his leg and then answer the question: "Do you wanna be a @$&#&@! fighter?
