MMA Fighter 'Popeye' Shows Off New Look Arms After Surgery Removed Chunks from Biceps
By Mike Parrott
Russian MMA fighter 'Popeye' is recovering well after having surgery to take six litres of Vaseline out of his Biceps.
23-year-old Kirill Tereshin, went viral worldwide after photos surfaced of his Vaseline-injected Biceps. The size of the enhanced Biceps were so big that people started comparing the size of them to cartoon character 'Popeye'.
Tereshin had injected the highly dangerous synthol directly into his veins which caused the Muscles to start deteriorate and rot away. The Russian started listening to his Doctors though after his arms had become paralysed and were unable to be moved.
Popeye released a video on his Instagram about the surgery, after having six litres of the vaseline removed, coming out as chunks from his Biceps supposedly.
He even jokingly put that he might sell some of the chunks from his body; "These are my treasures...Get yourself a piece, it's 'sale' time."
The Russian then went on to tell the camera how different it felt with less of the weight in his arms; "It feels very weird, very unusual. My arm feels lighter...Now I am going through a rehab, soon we will proceed with the next surgery."
His last MMA fight came by defeat, tapping out via Submission within three minutes of the first round.
Dr Melnikov from Sechenov Moscow State Medical University had warned the fighter: "Petroleum jelly saturates the muscles, under skin tissues and the skin itself.
"All that has to be removed, but we need to keep the vein, nerves and other functions of the limb."
"I think Kirill did not fully realise the consequences of what he had been doing."
