Bonnar: Knee temporarily 'paralyzed me'


Well, not only does he paralyze his opponents with fear before they ever step inside the cage with him, he actually paralyzes them once they do.

That's the word from his UFC 153 victim, Stephan Bonnar, at least, who revealed on his Twitter account following his crushing defeat the details of the first round finish at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, last night (Oct. 13, 2012):

"Thanks to everyone for the support, I'm so sorry I lost. I feel so bad for letting my fans down, but I promise to make it up to you. ... Not injured, just caught with a perfect knee to the solar plexus and it paralyzed me, was just getting movement back when fight was stopped."

I suppose. I just got an email from a person named "disbeliever", threatening to ban me if I make such a comment again.

Actually even a moderately hard strike to the chest just as the heart is restarting it's cycle will cause the heart to stop. It's such a small window that the likelihood is nearly impossible but there have been stories of kids getting hit in the chest with a baseball and having their hearts stop.

Was just getting movement back when fight was stopped.....LOL Bonnar’s lucky the fight was stopped or the movement he is talking about or lack thereof would have rapidly turned into none movement via KO! I love how fighters won’t just say I got my ass kicked and was out classed from the beginning to the end. He should have said I’ll do better next time that is, if I fight someone like Forest.

And that trip! Pretty impressive considering not many people can do that to Stephan. That and I can't recall seeing Anderson attempt something like that.
