Some very interesting journalism thats for sure. I'd never heard anything about that, and he doesn't provide a source. Sounds like BS for sure. He wouldnt have been able to walk, let alone fight Barnett, and trued "Shattering" of joints, where the bones disintegrate into fragments, can destroy your mobility for life, and would have probably ended his career for sure.
totally true. a shattered bone...let alone a bone/joint injury is no joke. you don't fight after that. i'm gonna go out on a limb and say i doubt a human even has the power to "shatter" a bone. break.. no doubt. but shatter? i just don't see it. sounds fake to me jmo. could be wrong
Humans have the power to shatter bones no problem, especially if they have the leg strength of Mirko Filopovic. Definitely the small metatarsal and the tarsal bones. As for being able to operate with shattered tarsals- no way. Metatarsals? With heavy wrapping, a lot of pain killers, and sheer determination its possible. I broke a metatarsal once and continued to workout for that day and the next one, but by the 3rd day my foot was in so much pain that I literally couldn't even walk on it. As was already mentioned, I'm sure Mirko is a hell of a lot tougher than me or anyone else on this site.
Then again, the "ankle" is one of the most bone-laden joints in the body. If he shattered his medial malleolous (the pointy bone structure sticking out on the inside of your ankle) it may be possible. That's an injury I've never seen or heard of.
Either way, taken in general context of the writing I doubt this guy is the most informed gentleman on the face of the earth.
