WATCH: UFC Chicago saw the most painful nutshot in the history of anything

God help Paul Felder

Edson Barboza, you can’t expect Paul Felder to forgive you for this.

Barboza took a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated American at UFC Chicago, landing 64 significant strikes over the fifteen minutes.

But undoubtedly the most significant strike of all came in the first round when Barboza, famous for his spinning kicks, landed a spinning back kick straight to Felder’s cup.

The taekwon-do technique is one of the hardest kicks that exist in martial arts and Felder’s face on impact kind of confirms that.

The Irish Dragon toughed it out, though, and actually fought through the next two rounds with that uncomfortable mixture of sensations that happens when you get caught below the belt. The nausea, the fighting-off-tears, the weakness at the knees and the indomitable feeling of “why me?”
