MMA is a pretty dangerous combat sport that can lead to some serious injuries. Who would figure that the most gruesome injury one fighter suffered actually happened out of the cage? Ray Elbe, who competed on Season 9 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” announced on Saturday that he sustained one of the most horrifying injuries we can think of: a broken penis. No, the injury did not occur while he was fighting; it actually happened while he was having sex. Elbe explained in a video posted on his website over the weekend that the injury occurred while he was having sex with his girlfriend in Malaysia. He says his penis broke when his girlfriend landed hard on him. Blood began spraying everywhere. “I ended up fracturing my penis bone … I tore the urinary tract, tore some membrane — as it happened you can imagine the shock and the horror that was going on,” Elbe said in the video. “I jumped up from the intimate moment, blood shooting out of my groin. I immediately tried to run to the shower, felt myself losing consciousness, tried to walk back to the bed at which point I collapsed, knocking myself out. I gave myself 10 stitches and fractured a couple teeth.” Elbe says he tried treating himself after coming to, and that his girlfriend was frantic. She called emergency while he was laying naked on the floor in a pool of blood. Elbe says he spent 13 days — including his birthday — in the hospital, and that he’s still using a catheter to urinate. He says he’s going back for a checkup on Dec. 19 where the catheter should be removed. Elbe was obviously embarrassed about the injury, be he says he went public about it to raise awareness for it. “This is probably the worst nightmare you can think of,” he said. “The biggest problem people suffering from this medical emergency encounter…is not immediately seeking medical attention. “I hope my story helps someone with a similar injury in some way…as this experience is truly something you would never wish on anyone..lol,” Elbe wrote on his blog. Over Twitter, Elbe described the experience as coming “as close to death as you can come without dying.” Doctors expect him to make a full recovery. We’ve seen other athletes get hurt during sex, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of someone breaking their penis. I honestly didn’t even know that was possible, so I really do thank Elbe for sharing his story to help educate the public. And here I was thinking sex was supposed to be an enjoyable experience …  Photo credit: Ray Elbe/Twitter

  • penile fracture...
  • What a frikin lie. He broke his ***** BONE? There is no bone in the *****. He stiched himself up with 13 stiches from the cut on his head after knocking himself out, Right! All this while laying in a pool of blood from his broken *****. Right! Anyone that believes this stoory has to be the stupidest person on earth.
  • I sure hope you're joking...lol! Maybe a thorough read, while keeping in mind that a non-linguist spoke those words, would clarify it for you...smh
  • its real, but not the bone part. it is a rupture
  • It is possible to break your ***** during sex....look it up. No, there's not an actual bone in there, but this particular injury can happen & does more than people realize. Before commenting that something is a lie, try researching it first or you might just sound like the stupidest person on earth.

  • It's called dicktheria.
  • Here's probably what happened..

    *Does contain anatomy photos*
  • He has taken too many punches......lol
  • It didn't mean he stitched himself it mean he fell while blacking out causing him to need 10 stitches.
  • That's how I read it too Buttonbuck.
  • "A popping or cracking sound, significant pain, violent hallucinations, immediate flaccidity, confusion of partner, and skin hematoma of various sizes are commonly associated with the event."

    Violent hallucinations, really? What could be worse than what you just did to yourself?
  • He'll need a widdle straight jacket!
  • Somehow I doubt the veracity of this tale. More likely his GF kicked him wearing high heels. Which if done right, might have been good.
  • Penises do not have a "bone" per se but when it gets hard it can be fractured. Everyone takes things so literally.
  • I just searched Penile Fracture using Google Image search. Warning to the rest of you.....Don't do it.
