Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    That sounds horrible, and likely a career ending injury.

    That's the second pro with a major injury this week.

    On Tuesday, Wanty's Maurits Lammertink was knocked down by a scooter, while buying ice cream for his family and suffered a brain hemorrhage. He was rushed to hospital with serious injuries and underwent brain surgery that night.
