Demetrious Johnson’s johnson causing problems

Immediately after Demetrious Johnson won last Friday’s fight against Ian McCall, he declared he was ready for the finals, the sooner the better. Then he got home and his groin got all swollen and painful.

“It’s called an inguinal hernia,” Johnson today told Radio ( “It’s very common in men. It’s pretty explicit to talk about it, but basically, it’s a very uncomfortable situation. I noticed it after I got done fighting.”

He ain’t lying when he says it’s an explicit situation, but we here are Fightlinker are more than happy to give you the grisly details:

An inguinal (pronounced “ingwanal”) hernia is the most common type of hernia. The hernia can appear as a swelling in your groin or as an enlarged scrotum (the pouch containing the testicles), which may be painful. The swelling will often appear when you are lifting something and disappear when you lie down.

An inguinal hernia usually occurs when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel, such as the intestine, pokes through into your groin at the top of your inner thigh.

If that pictograph ain’t enough for you, after the jump we have video! Horrible, horrible NSFW video! As for Johnson, inguinal hernia surgery requires a month of recovery so the first featherweight title fight should happen sometime around October or November.

    so if I understand this correctly

    RM wants you to censor the WORD dick

    but are completely fine with you posting GRAPHIC HERNIA EXAM VIDEOS?

    wtf?  I guess you need an MBA in advertising to fully appreciate a medical doctor groping a micro phallus

    I had one of these for ten years.  sometimes a loop of my intestine would slip into my nutsack and it was excruciating.  I had to lay down and put my hips into the air and push it back into my body cavity.  it would be fine for a while, then sometimes just slip down, guts into my nuts.  after ten years, i finally had the surgery.  easy, should have gotten it done immediately but fear won out.  i don’t know what the recovery will be like for a pro athlete like mighty mouse,  when he’ll be able to lift weights, run, and grapple. i wasn’t really exercising or anything at the time, so regular life was pretty easy to get back to. 1 week maybe.

    Fine with me posting Youtube videos :-) I guess medical videos of dicks is okay the same way titties in public are if a kid is sucking on them. 

  • Letibleu

    can you write a post and somehow work in a video of a doctor showing students how to do a gynecology exam on a young cute girl with nothing wrong with her?

    my dick was never fondled like that in the course of my medical exams and surgery.  they never mentioned any potential harm to my penis from the hernia.  i think this doc has something else on his mind.

  • iamphoenix

    the picture of the dick has a little sad face on it. made me lawls. speaking of dicks, what happened to Dick? Does submitted by Fightlinker also mean submitted by Dick?

  • agentsmith

    I’m gonna go ahead and pronounce this affliction as an inwangal hernia.  Poetic license!

  • Giallo

    Wtf? Now my balls hurt. I didn’t need to know my guts could seep into my nut sac.

  • agentsmith

    ^ Oh, there’s a rich tapestry of things that can go wrong with your guts and nuts that you don’t even wanna know about.

  • Fightlinker

    Submitted by Fightlinker means submitted by Fightlinker. Aka me. Dick is just a bit busy lately becoming a neuro-surgeon or some gay stuff

    dude better be careful. i had bilateral inguinal hernias, and that sucked, but fixing them and the recovery after that was way more challenging. 
    the surgeon put prolene mesh in me to fix them (most common used material), and i got meshomas from it. a meshoma is where the plastic mesh they use shrinks into a hard little wiffle ball and wraps around your intestines and the nerves in your groin, crushing your insides slowly. sometimes it migrates before shrinking, so i’ve read accounts of it grabbing a liver then shrinking and having to remove half the liver, or pinning a guy’s intestine to his stomach and shrinking and they had to peel his stomach and remove some of his intestine. it took me many surgeries and almost 7 years just to walk okay again. it looks like i have a pimp lean, but its just because my balls hurt when i walk.
    if they fix him the old fashioned way (sew him up like a football after resetting the hernia) he’ll heal faster, it’ll be stronger, and he’ll have a higher chance for recurrence, but that is an easily fixable problem (this is how surgeons get their hernias fixed when they get them). if he gets the mesh, like most people do, it’ll cost less, he’ll take longer to recover from the surgery, and he’ll have a statistically lessened chance of recurrence, but his career will have a smaller shelf life (as the mesh hardens it makes movement progressively harder; for some people the process could take decades, but for others it takes only months. you aren’t told about this statistic because it’s a disputed fact; the argument against it from the insurance companies and fda is that people get old, and that is why the mesh hardens. seriously). 2% of the people that get the mesh treatment are permanently disabled from the process; i know this because i am on disability because of it. 

    i’ve heard that most athletes go with the old fashioned method of restuffing the guts back in their hole and sewing the wound up like a football. one of the guys that goes to the same surgeon as me was a denver bronco, and he had the mesh treatment like most people do. usually you don’t get an option, since your surgeon will do it a certain way they prefer and if you request a different way they refer you to someone else. the bronco player was crippled and had to retire, his wife had to take a job at starbucks for the insurance when their money ran out (lots of surgeries get expensive). so for even these top shelf athletes it can be a life altering thing. this guy got the mesh out like i did, and he’s a lot better now. he isn’t a pro athlete at all anymore, but he can walk now. 
    good luck mighty mouse. don’t get the mesh.
    for most people, like sprechenzedouche, it’s a non issue or it takes years to harden and grab your balls from the inside (you might be old by then and it won’t matter?), but for a ridiculous number of people it is a game changer. it’s not just about being able to train as hard or keep the same pace; i spent years in the fetal position. meshoma is a permanent kick in the nuts.don’t roll the dice with something like that. hernia surgery can fuck you up. choose wisely motherfucker. 

  • Reverend Clint

    sounds horrible and a waste of time to get a mesh… which must be why i see adds for people suing pelvic mesh companies

  • frickshun

    HOLY SHIT. Thank gawd I don’t have DaddyPants life. It sounds terrible. I’m kissing my dick so hard right now for being healthy. Mmmmmmmm, that’s nice. Slurp slurp ………A LITTLE PRIVACY PLEASE!!
