PFL fighter Christian “Hollywood” Lohsen got his left testicle removed as a result of an accident that occurred during training. The testicle was ruptured by a knee that was accidentally delivered to the groin – resulting in a serious injury.
The 26 year old fighter was immediately taken to a hospital. His ruptured testicle was surgically removed and he is now in recovery.
The next day after the accident, through his Instagram account, Lohsen shares his condition with the public and uploaded a picture of him on a hospital bed. He says that he is fine and thanked everyone who helped him.
“So last night was rough… in a training accident I got my left testicle ruptured by a knee which led to it getting surgically removed … thank you to everyone last night that helped me get to the hospital. I’m fine home resting, surgery went well.” Lohsen wrote.
He even mentioned the outcome of the testicle removal. He said he will still be able to have children and won’t lose testosterone. “Doc said I won’t lose testosterone or ability to have kids from this.” Lohsen wrote.
On top of that, he still has his sense of humor with him. He said if anyone attacked his remaining testicle, he won’t be friends with them. He even added hashtags about ‘no n*t November and ‘one ball wonder’.
