Mixed martial arts fighters are used to dealing with pain, but for former Ultimate Fighter hopeful Ray Elbe, he had no choice but to tap out to the most painful experience of his life after breaking his penis.
Elbe had previously come close to making a name for himself in the UFC’s reality TV show, The Ultimate Fighter, but lost out in the preliminary bouts to decide the season’s housemates in 2009.
Unfortunately for him, Elbe has now hit the headlines for rather less pleasant reasons, after sustaining
a broken penis while having sex with his girlfriend while in Malaysia on December 3.
Incredibly, Elbe has not only gone public with the painful and harrowing story, he’s taken to YouTube to give a first-hand account of his injury.
“I was having intercourse with my girlfriend… and ended up breaking – fracturing – my penis bone. It’s actually possible guys.”
He revealed the injury caused intense bleeding and led to him passing out from the pain.
He was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery which, thankfully for Elbe, was declared a success.
“The doctor expects a full recovery… keeping it safe doesn’t mean just wearing a condom!”
On his personal blog, Elbe also explained why he went public with his injury.
“The biggest problem people suffering from this medical emergency encounter is not immediately seeking medical attention, usually due to the same emotions I initially felt about the accident,” Elbe explained.
“Life is about growing as a person, learning from past experiences – something I take great devotion in trying to do with each opportunity.
“I hope my story helps someone with a similar injury in some way…as this experience is truly something you would never wish on anyone lol.
“To any bitter ex-girlfriends still stalking the blog… smile today as whatever Karma you felt was deserved has been dealt… lol.
“Moving forward, I am so appreciative that the women I love has been by my side this entire process – and I honestly hope no one reading this ever suffers the same injury.”
