MMA star Bryce Mitchell has laughed off Charles Rosa’s vow to “have one of his limbs ripped off” in their upcoming clash at UFC 249.
The 25-year-old tore his scrotum in half with a drill back in 2018… leaving him nonplussed by Rosa’s threats.
The gruesome accident saw him out of action for seven months.
Mitchell wrote at the time: “so i was gunna train today but i ripped my nutsack in half. im bout to get stitched up.
“i was holdn a board over my head with a drill n my pants. i was sizin up the board n the drill went off n tangled my nuts up n it.
“i dropped the board and reversed the drill and untangled my nutsack but they was ripped n half. im serious too lol.”
“Thug Nasty” has since made a winning return, defeating Bobby Moffett and most recently Matt Sayles.
Rosa has attempted to up the ante ahead of their upcoming meeting, by offering a “guarantee” that Mitchell will “have one of his limbs ripped off”.
I ripped my nuts in half and almost lost my weiner u think I’m worried about a limb.
But American Mitchell has laughed off the threat.
He responded on Twitter: “I ripped my nuts in half and almost lost my weiner u think I’m worried about a limb.”
Mitchell faced a difficult recovery process for the gruesome and humiliating injury, and at the time even remarked that people “probably wouldn’t ask me about it” if they knew “how close I was to dying.”
Rosa, 33, offered up another retort after his initial comments were dismissed in blase fashion.
He hit back: “You should be.

“But don’t worry, I got your camo sling covered. I’ll bring it to UFC 249 weigh-ins.”
Rosa, also American, will face Mitchell as part of the early prelims for the much-anticipated event in Jacksonville.
And the exchange is bound to add extra spice to the occasion.
