Kevin Randleman almost dies … again.

This has not been a good year for Kevin Randleman. It was just under 365 days ago that Kevin got busted for using animal or corpse urine for his Pride US fight. Since then, half his organs shut down, he got arrested for a laundry list of offenses, and now to top it off he just had the world’s nastiest case of staph.

Many other sites decided to show the picture of Kevin’s staph, but I’m not going to. God knows half the fighters out there probably have horrific STDs as well, and no one wants to see that shit either. A lot of people are also wondering “Is this the continuation of staph infection’s campaign to take over the world?” No, not likely.

Remember: Kevin Randleman has done so much crazy shit to his body that I’m amazed he’s still alive. I have no doubt he’s going to turn up dead in the next 5 years unless he stops fighting and moves into something less strenuous like accounting or bathroom attendant.

I’m sure I know Kevin’s attitude towards everything he did: “Sure, this might take 5 years off my life, but who cares about those years? 70-85 are bullshit years anyways.” Well, that’s not really how it works. Doing all the drugs and pushing your body that hard definitely shortens your life … but it also destroys the condition of your body so you’re essentially stuck crippled and pooing yourself at 45.

    WTF were those photos? Was that his torso and armpit??? He has a fucking whole a little smaller than Starnes axe gash…but how long did he wait to take care of it?

    Who released the pictures??? I really hope they aren’t him, and possibly from some pathology book…or a surgery. Hopefully it’s just a hoax, running it’s course.

    Yeah that was his body. Sick, huh? Looks like someone scooped pieces of his side out with an ice cream scoop

    According to Randleman’s thinking he’d say, “Thats why God invented Cholostomy bags.” A Timmy match redux.

    wtf is staph infection?

    how come its going to town on fighters this year? dont ppl take showers? dont mma gyms mop the mats? empty the dam water out of the bucket you meatheads!!! dont fighters wash their clothes after practice?

    every gym should employ a Gay Rory. you know hes mopping the mats, washing ppls clothes, doing dishes, feather dusting and hes just itching you give you a sponge bath.

    It’s something basically akin to ‘super-staph’ … staph that’s resistant to standard antibiotics. Some people’s immune systems fight it off, but for those who don’t, it’s pretty horrific.

    After seeing the pictures, my skin feels itchy….

    The thing about Staph that RARELY if ever hits the news it that it is opportunistic. If a person has a depleted immune system, the agent bacteria or virus would/could/will take the opportunity.

    If the germ theory was true, there would be nobody around to see it. Kevin Randleman is more than likely on a shitload of drugs, and after his organs shutting down is most likely on some immunosuppresants than made him vurnerable.

    The guy is the ultimate host for infection.

    AND the should mop the fucking mats.
