Schall tears bicep in loss to Olympic gold medalist Judoka Ishii

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Kerry “Meat Truck” Schall fought Satoshi Ishii at Antonio Inoki’s IGF GENOME 25 on Wednesday, March 20 in Japan. Ishii, a former Olympic gold medalist in judo, won by arm lock.

Schall had not fought since 2010, and took the fight on 10 days notice. Unfortunately, manager Monte Cox reports that Schall suffered an injury to his arm, when his bicep detached while landing a right hook on Satoshi.

Schall will need surgery to reattach the muscle. The image below is a sobering reminder of the reality behind the excitement of a fight.

You can see Schall check his arm at the 1:30 mark.
