Just to throw my 2-bits in, I had the same injury as Kalib where the rib was seperated from the sternum. It is way more than bruised ribs. Even breaking a hand is more manageable in a fight. It took me about 3 months before I could even start thinking about a pushup... the core-structure of my body was nuked. Still have a protrusion where the rib attachment scarred reconnecting.

If the doctor knew what Kalib had, he would have been yanked just as fast as Nate was.

Becca - really cool picture.

Anthony - I totally agree with your assesment of the rib injury. I had a intercostal muscle strain (nowhere near the severity of what you experienced) and I was out for a solid 2 months. Rib injuries suck someting fierce. When I was up in Chico I would go see a great DC/ART guy (John Fragoso's the MAN!) who was really into MMA & CF. The intercostal strain was the only injury where he told me that I should really take it easy and not screw around and start training to soon because those types of injuries will hang around forever.

I had the same injury happen about 4 years ago. It still bothers me, but my injury must not have been as bad.

I didn't know anything was wrong until the next day.

I’ve seen this program several times. It’s the quitters and whiners that make for “good TV”. There’s nothing interesting about some guy minding his own business and training diligently.
