UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell details disastrous drilling accident: ‘I ripped my nutsack in half’

New, comments

If you thought Devin Powell’s testicle injury was bad, fellow UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell might have topped that.

MMA: TUF 27 Finale-Diamond vs Mitchell Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

“Thug Nasty” apparently suffered a very nasty injury.

UFC fighter and The Ultimate Fighter season 27 cast member Bryce Mitchell doesn’t have a fight booked, but it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing him for awhile. Mitchell revealed that he inadvertently did some serious damage to his nether regions.

Via Mitchell’s Facebook page:

so i was gunna train today but i ripped my nutsack in half. im bout to get stitched up. i was holdn a board over my head with a drill n my pants. i was sizin up the board n the drill went off n tangled my nuts up n it. i dropped the board and reversed the drill and untangled my nutsack but they was ripped n half. im serious too lol. i obviously cant post a pic. but wen my nuts r seald back up ima come train again. i think a high kick would re rip them haha. and if i hear any shitty puns bout how this whole this is nutty or screwed up i aint talked to u for bout a month. if ure gunna drop a pun to make fun of me atleast put sum thot into lol

And here’s a pic that Mitchell posted of the bloody aftermath:

As you can tell, this story is absolutely crazy. It’s right up there with lightweight Devin Powell having a ruptured testicle while training with teammate Joe Lauzon.

Mitchell made it to the semifinals in the featherweight bracket of TUF: Undefeated, but was submitted by eventual tournament winner Brad Katona. He earned a spot on the season finale and earned a majority decision vs. Tyler Diamond.

It’s only fair after a traumatizing mishap to honor Mitchell’s request, so try not to make any lame puns about this accident, or if you’re going to try, make it clever. Please remember that there’s a vas deferens between a good pun and a bad pun.
