Give it up idiot. ACL is critical for normal knee mechanics.

I imagine you're at greater risk for blowing your other ligaments.

Rogan claims he knows a UFC fighter without one. And I'm sure somebody has had a career in the NFL without one.

On paper, it seems like a terrible idea. However, I’ve met a few guys training that claim to not have had an acl for years. They say they’ve strengthened the rest of their knee to compensate. Still sounds very risky.

Not really the best comparison.  A prolapsed anus opens up a lot of opportunities for premium work.  It has appeal to a niche audience that is willing to pay top dollar for that exposed butthole.

The ACL stabilizes the knee.  You can run, pain free, with a torn or non existent ACL, but with any sort of cutting or pivoting, you risk tearing the other components of the knee (cartilage, other ligaments, etc).

You never competed on a high level with one. How are you going to start now?

I have 3 ACL replacements . During the time I trained without an ACL, my stability was crap and always had a knee brace on real tight so that constricted the blood flow, so training with the higher level guys in the gym just wasn't happening. i was good at take down and I couldn't even train TDs anymore without thinking of getting hurt. SO - answer is NO

Probably not.......it is well known that judo has a higher rate of knee injuries than any other combat sport, but most importantly every judoka on planet Earth is required to balance and support weight on one leg or drop to their knees multiple times during a match.

Heroic performances aside, you need both acl’s to train properly a for an MMA match... and competing on a missing or compromised one is dangerous and takes balls.

DeJuan Blair played in the NBA without any!

But there are freaks, after a year without mine i was unstable and once in a while a cut would make my knee collapse.

I trained hard and was doing extremely well without an ACL for quite a while until I suffered another injury to the same knee (meniscus and MCL). 

 

Its weird , because I felt as strong without an ACL as I did before the rupture. Mind you , I went years between the initial injury and regular training.

What's the end result? You have a broken body, perhaps some bragging rights. You're getting rich off judo.

I remember reading somewhere a couple years ago that Daniel Cormier doesn't have an acl and gets by with stem cell and prp injections
