There are “groin injuries,” and then there’s what Bryce Mitchell currently is dealing with.

The 23-year-old UFC featherweight will be on the shelf for a while after injuring his scrotum in a freak accident. Mitchell, who detailed the incident Tuesday night in a graphic Twitter post, apparently lacerated his scrotum with a power drill while holding a board over his head.

For those unaware: Mitchell’s nickname in UFC is “ThugNasty.” That really has nothing to do with his unfortunate scrotum injury, but it’s worth pointing out nonetheless.

The injury and looming recovery certainly is a kick in the teeth for Mitchell, who’s 10-0 in his still-young UFC career. Let’s hope he picks up right where he left off, with all ancillary anatomy in working order.
