- Kirill Tereshin, a Russian bodybuilder with incredibly huge biceps, has been defeated by a supposed underdog in an MMA fight
- The bout did not go according to plan as Popoye went down barely three minutes into the fight by an opponent nearly twice his age
- The Russia bodybuilder has incredibly huge biceps from injecting himself with synthol
Kirill Tereshin, a Russian bodybuilder, has learnt the hard way that fighting is more than biceps as he was defeated in an embarrassing bout by an opponent nearly twice his age.
The 23 years old also known as Popeye for having the arm structure of the famous sailor in 1929 cartoon series, was given a wild chase off the ring by his 43-year-old opponent Oleg Mongol in the fight held in Siberia.
According to The Sun, Tereshin injected his arms with the highly risky synthol, and this made him develop the peculiar arm structure, resembling Popeye.
But his 61 centimetre biceps were not enough to beat blogger and actor Oleg Mongol as he was knocked out barely three minutes into the bout.
Initially, the ex-Army soldier came out swinging and it looked like he had the fight in control in the first few seconds.
He connected with some early punches but was later taken down and embarrassingly compelled to tap out after a choke.
His opponent Kamotskiy flattened him with virtually his first punch – an indication that boxing might not be his calling after all.
On the question of injecting synthol into his arms, doctors have constantly warned Teshi that the practice is a serious health hazard.
The deed puts the 23-year old at risk of lacking arm movement in the long run as a result of complications including nerve damage, infections, stroke and oil-filled cysts or ulcers in the muscle.
