Devin Powell Talks Ruptured Testicle and Diamond MMA on The MMA Hour

Devin Powell Talks Ruptured Testicle and Diamond MMA on The MMA Hour

Devin Powell experienced every fighter's worst nightmare when he was training with Joe Lauzon and took a knee to the groin, rupturing his testicle. Powell wasn't wearing his cup while training, and we think he's definitely learned his lesson on this one. We're sure that he'll be wearing his Diamond MMA cup for every training session in the future. We definitely give props to Devin for how well he's been dealing with the injury and how he's using humor to get through it. Devin was recently on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and they chatted about his injury.
