A Cup you can Trust
Words I never though I would utter.
If you’ve watched MMA for more than 2 weeks, then you have seen some pretty bad groin shots. TUF Brazil had back to back shots that could have changed the outcome of the fight. Eric Prindle had to go to the hospital for a groin shot, ending his fight night early. Another Fighter who shall remain nameless, lost a testicle in practice (exploded from an inadvertent knee) and the list goes on and on. Cheick Kongo has knee’d almost every opponent he’s faced in the groin, and every fighter in the sport has taken a tough shot there at some point in their career. It’s a part of the sport, it sucks, and it has ruined fights for the fighters and fans alike. Here’s the rub, it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s cup manufacturers in the US and Thailand that make cups to withstand a shot with no damage. Muay Thai fighters have a cup system that virtually eliminates the need to worry about groin shots at all. Below is a video example of one such product, demonstrated by the owner no less. If I was gonna fight I’d look into these bad boys.
Warning, it might make you cringe just a bit, but don’t worry, all is well for everyone involved.
