One of the nastiest leg breaks happened last weekend, and it was all from a leg check

I like to say all teenage mutant ninja turtles like pizza, but that’s a negative stereotype. I haven’t even met a teenage mutant ninja turtle. That’s like saying all teenage mutant ninja turtles wear primary colored headbands and have a strong obsession with pizza. I’m not sure if that’s true because I’ve never encountered turtles that were laced in mutagen and trained by an ancient sewer rat. That day will come, and when it does I will be ready for it.

It’s also not accurate to claim that all leg checks result in gruesome leg breaks, however this past weekend at Total Combat 47 in Durham, England, this was absolutely true. Check out Gerry Hopkins’ leg after his threw a leg kick that was checked by his opponent in just thirteen seconds of the first round. Hopkins was rushed to the hospital shortly after the incident. Now behold, a leg break that would even make Paul Harris blush. Props to Ben over at MMA HQ for the find.
