Video: Watch, hear, and regret the sickening leg snap of Minowaman's Achilles lock submission last weekend in Japan (NSFW)

Don't watch this. If you do, send an angry follow-up Email to Middle Easy for giving you nightmares.

Remember when former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva broke his leg?

It was a gruesome site to behold, no question, but probably not something opponent Chris Weidman was hoping for, even with a name like "destruction." Then we have Ikuhisa Minowa's submission win over Goran Jettingstad at Inoki Genome Fight (IGF) last Saturday night (April 5, 2014) in Tokyo, Japan.

What started as an Achilles lock quickly devolved into some form of medieval torture, as "Minowaman" ripped at Jettingstad's leg like he was trying to free a stubborn drumstick from his Thanksgiving turkey. Naturally, you can only bend a limb so far before it snaps, crackles and pops.

Or in this case, gets utterly destroyed, which will undoubtedly force us to reconsider this list.

This is why we have athletic commissions. Minowa (59-35-8) has over 100 professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fights with 41 submission victories. Jettingstad entered the ring with a record of 0-0 because the 25-year-old Swede was making his pro debut.

No reasonable commission would license that fight.

But enter the cage at your own risk and do you wanna be a (expletive) fighter and all that other bullshit. Hopefully, Jettingstad can recover from what looks to be a catastrophic leg injury and salvage his budding career in a place that will use a little more discretion when rubber stamping match-ups.

At least he didn't give him the middle finger afterward.
