UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell will have to put his training on hold for the time being. The 23-year-old suffered a scrotum-related injury in a freak incident that will keep him out for a while.
Mitchell explained what happened on social media, and stressed that he was serious about the injury and that his post was not a joke.
*WARNING* Mitchell’s post contains some NSFW language:

According to Mitchell, he was working with tools when a drill “went off” and tangled his scrotum. He was able to reverse the drill, but realized he had ripped his skin in the process. He added that he obviously couldn’t post a picture to prove the injury, and that he would need some time before he began training again. Mitchell did not provide a timetable for his return.
For those who doubted the story, Mitchell also posted a picture of his blood-stained boxers as proof on the injury. That post could be both NSFW and disturbing. We’ll link to it, but you’ve been warned.
When Mitchell is able to return, he’ll look to build on his impressive 10-1 record as a mixed martial artist.
