MMA fighter Ray 'Magical' Elbe suffers penis injury during sex
The ring is not the only place mixed martial arts fighters received their worst injuries, as the Ultimate Fighter reality TV series competitor Ray "Magical" Elbe tried one trick too many during a lovemaking session while holidaying in Malaysia.
What should have been a passionate, enjoyable moment quickly became every bloke's worst nightmare, with Elbe suffering catastophic injuries downstairs and earning himself a five-day hospital stay with a severely mangled manhood, News.com.au reported.
The MMA fighter claimed to have accidentally launched his girlfriend more than eight inches into the air but had no defence against the landing, which caused a "fracture and slight tear in the urinary tube", according to Elbe's blog from his hospital bed.
Bleeding badly and shocked by the potential ramifications of what he'd just done, Elbe passed out and fell, hitting his mouth and chipping teeth in the process.
Elbe then spent almost a week in hospital after surgery to repair the damage, which cost him more than 6000 dollars.
To make matters worse, Elbe said everyone in the hospital was so fascinated by his injury that he had a constant stream of visitors stopping by for a look.
"The worst part of this has been the fact that literally everyone who works in the hospital has come in asking to see my shaft out of curiosity. Guess in a muslim country this type of accident isn't as frequent as you would suspect," Elbe wrote.
Elbe also chronicled what may well be the most awkward phone conversation in history - an emergency call to his parents, explaining why he needed them to wire him an emergency cash stash in the middle of his holiday.
Doctors expect Elbe to make a full recovery.
