Bellator 59 Results: Eric Prindle gets kicked in the nuts by Thiago Santos (Video)

Props: The Underground

No way to finesse this one Maniacs, as Eric Prindle gets a straight soccer-kick to the yam bag at Bellator 59 on Nov. 26, 2011, at Caesar's Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

From Brian Hemminger's results and play-by-play:

Thiago Santos stands up and kicks Prindle between the legs. The ref puts a halt to the action and Prindle will have five minutes to recover. Huge bonehead move by Santos as that'll allow Prindle to get back to his feet, if he's capable of getting back to his feet. Five minutes have elapsed and the bell just rang because Prindle can't continue. Ughh, that's a huge disappointment.

Their heavyweight tournament final was ruled a "no contest" and according to Prindle's Twitter account, he was forced to seek additional medical attention after one of his testicles ballooned up to twice its normal size.

He's expected to make a full recovery.
