UFC 234 - Whitta... ah ... never mind ...
Quote | Reply
I was on the fence over this one before the announcement. But, this is a killer. I think I'm out.

Anyone planning on watching?


Robert Whittaker will not be defending his title on Saturday.

The middleweight champion was scheduled to defend against challenger Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC 234 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, but MMA Fighting has confirmed that Whittaker has been forced to withdraw due to an injury. Per ESPN, Whittaker was diagnosed with a hernia and will undergo surgery today.

This was to be Whittaker’s first official defense of the middleweight title after a scheduled championship bout opposite Yoel Romero at UFC 225 became a non-title affair when Romero missed weight. Whittaker went on to win that five-round bout by unanimous decision.

So ... his bowel "popped out" and had to be "pushed back in" and "stitched in place."

Doctor said if he fought, it likely would have burst and he would have died. Damn.

There was a fight tonight? News to me but since the “free” ESPN fight night fiasco I haven’t been following the circus that is UFC lately.

And how the hell does your bowels fall out?

Not ESPN+. PPV.

An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object.

Ok I get what an abdominal hernia is - but I read “bowels popped out” and it painted a different visual in my drunk mind.

This must be the worst advertised PPV in UFC history because I didnt see a single promo or get any emails about it. I normally get bombarded with them from UFC and my cable provider as a frequent buyer. Is the card any good?

This wasn't a typical "abdominal hernia." According to White and the doc, his bowel, not his intestine, poked through the stomach lining. It is "like" a hernia, but, involving his bowel instead of just is small intestine. Evidently, it is potentially deadly.

Well, wifie, who has experience in this area with elderly individuals, says it is normally referred to as a "prolapsed rectum." So, um, yeah, his ass started to fall out ...

That seems bad. Wonder what happens if you get kicked in the ass while your ass is fallin gout.

I was already planning on not watching but that makes for a pretty thin card.

We are so fucked.
