Shonie Carter photographs his own leg surgery

Friday, August 03, 2012

Who else but Shonie Carter would ask a surgeon if he could stay awake during an operation so he could record it?

When doctors informed Shonie “Mr. International” Carter that he would need a subcutaneous neural polyp removed, he asked what any normal fighter would.

“Can I video tape it?”

The video request was denied, but Carter, who stayed awake throughout the procedure, was allowed to photograph the proceedings.

If you had a problem with the stomach scene in Aliens, this one might not be for you.
