MMA fighter amazed by reaction to his ruptured testicle – Ive found it crazy

An MMA fighter who lost a testicle after rupturing it in a training incident said he is stunned by the media coverage he has received.

Christian Lohsen, dubbed the ‘One Ball Wonder’, confessed he has found it difficult when he posted a photo on Saturday from a hospital bed following his emergency treatment.

Lohsen showed he has a sense of humour as he took to social media to encourage fans to suggest a new nickname to replace his current alias, 'Hollywood'.

Ideas included 'The American Uniballer', 'Bollywood', 'One Nut Wonder' and 'Lost One' Lohsen.

“I 100,000/10 do not recommend for anyone to go through that,” Lohsen warned.

“But since I’m stuck on the couch while recovering, I’ve found it crazy how many articles, comments and forums I’ve seen about what happened.

‘I’ve seen support from people I don’t remotely know and I’ve also seen a ton of good jokes that have given me a good, much-needed laugh today.

“Thank you to everyone that’s sending good vibes. I will recover and be back. I’ve got great friends and family supporting me and the perfect wife taking care of anything and everything I’ve needed.”

UFC fighters sent messages of support to the American, with former fighter Mike Perry writing: “Oh my gosh man.

Drop your suggestion for a new nickname for Lohsen in the comments section.

“Your sacrifices will be rewarded. They have to be.”

Veteran fighter Ben Saunders chimed in and added: “Dude, sending you positivity in abundance.”

Lohsen explained the incident: “In a training accident, I got my left testicle ruptured by a knee which led to it getting surgically removed.

“Thank you to everyone last night who helped me get to the hospital. I’m fine: home resting, surgery went well.

“Doc said I won’t lose testosterone or the ability to have kids from this. If I lose the other one, however it’s a different story. So from now on, if you hit me in my last testicle, we aren’t friends.”

Professional Fighters League newcomer Lohsen won on his debut in August and has a record of nine wins from 11 pro bouts.
