In mixed martial arts, fighting blind is typically more or less a euphemism, but in WEC fighter Ben Henderson's case, it's been applied quite literally.

"It's not very good, my vision," said Henderson. "I can (my opponents) far away as a blur, but the closer they get, if I squint, I can see them more clearly.

How can someone be an elite fighter with such poor vision?
