Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig is pretty stoked about earning a place in the UFC history books with his ‘4 second’ KO of Jonathan Goulet back in January of 2006. He’s stoked because he’s got a ‘cool story to tell his grandkids’ one day. Duane is going to be one of those Grandpas with all the cool stories…and some horrifying stories as well. Older people always get their jollies off telling young people horror stories about how hard their life was or by sharing some outlandish tragic event that they were able to overcome. Increased sadism must be something that comes with aging.
Men it seems, like to share horrible groin area injury stories. As a woman, I can’t completely relate to the emotions a horrifying scrotum injury story creates within a man. All I can do is compare it to the stories I heard while I was pregnant from women who have already been through the experience of giving birth. I remember all the ladies from my office gathered around my desk like it was a campfire and it was time to tell scary ghost stories. Their faces were plastered with big evil smiles and they would cackle like witches while they told their panic inducing stories of forceps, giant snipping shears and tearing flesh. I can’t even think of those stories now without breaking into a cold sweat and feeling faint.
I’ve got to go get some air and splash some water on my face just from revisiting thoughts of those stories. While I do that get ready for your own cringe inducing moments by watching Duane Ludwig tell you a fun little horrific injury story in this interview with cagefanatic.com:
