Christian Lohsen has had one of his testicles removed after rupturing it during a training session.
The MMA fighter reportedly took a knee to the nuts and was taken to hospital where he ended up having one of them surgically removed.
While the incident is pretty serious, Lohsen has kept his sens of humour throughout it all.
"So last night was rough," he said via Instagram.
"In a training accident I got my left testicle ruptured by a knee which led to it getting surgically removed... thank you to everyone last night that helped me get to the hospital. I'm fine home resting, surgery went well.
"Doc said I won't lose testosterone or ability to have kids from this. If I lose the other one however it's a different story so from now on if you hit me in my last testicle we aren't friends... lol.

Lohsen boasts a professional record of nine wins and two losses and was victorious in five of his last six bouts, losing to J.J. Okanovich back in 2019 on Dana White's Contender Series.
He is now currently plying his trade in the Professional Fighters League but will probably be out of action for a quite a while now.
