    ^^ Well that sounds unpleasant. I bet he wishes that he'd checked more of those kicks now.

    Strikeforce: Nate Marquardt Tweets Photos of Injured Leg | Fightday

    Doctor explains possible long-term damage to Nate Marquardt's leg - Bloody Elbow

    Over at Fightland, Dr. Michael Kelly explains that there can be significant long term damage from leg kicks like those taken by Marquardt:


    The biggest problem with something like this, where you have a repetitive injury in the same area and it’s that extensive, is the development of Myositis Ossficans Traumatica. What that is, is you get heterotropic bone formation in the muscle as a result of repetitive strikes or repetitive blood trauma to the same area. As your body heals, it starts to reabsorb some of that blood, but it leaves deposits of calcium in the muscle, and the body actually starts to form bone in the muscle, which affects the function of the muscle. And looking at this bruise, you can see varied levels of Ecchymosis, of bruising. That tells me he’s more likely to develop big calcium rocks in the muscle.

    The article then goes on to explain that this could cause loss of function of the muscle, loss of strength, deformity or other complications.

    I pulled my hammy one time and it looked like that, only farther on the backside.

    I thought Tarec looked good. Very impressive to beat Nate. His tdd was great and his striking was good. Especially those leg kicks. What surprised me was that he never went away from them. He attacked that leg the whole fight. I always feel like guys get away from it after a round or two. He just kept going with that game plan, which was amazing.

I could barely walk (even after I sobered up) and it took a solid two months for it to go away completely. Suffice to say that it was not my proudest moment lol.

    He really impressed me last night. Nate is a tough fight for anyone. I'm really looking forward to what he can do in the UFC.
