It is a rule in mixed martial arts that everyone fights hurt. The phenomenon is so pervasive, that it has now extended even to Octagon girl Brittney Palmer.
Brittney Palmer told TMZ she fractured her wrist while
supergirl punching Arianny skateboarding in Hollywood Hills.
Palmer's surgeon wanted to put her wrist in a cast, but she gamely refused, as duty calls on June 14 at UFC 174 in Vancouver, Canada.
"No one wants to see an octagon girl sporting a dorky cast," she explained.
Palmer also recently completed her NSFWish 2015 Calendar shoot without injury, although her clothes nearly fell off.
And here Palmer paints through the injury.
