Kirill Tereshin, known as Russian 'Popoye', who recently underwent surgery is recovering well after the procedure.
The 23-year-old MMA fighter known for his huge biceps was said to have taken out about six liters of Vaseline during operation.
Pictures of the MMA fighter went viral across most social media around the world after injecting the substance into his veins as reported by Sport Bible.
Afterward, his biceps became too big that people likened him to one of the old popular cartoon characters 'Popoye'.
The effect of the Vaseline caused his arms to deteriorate and eventually got paralyzed. It was then he decided to listen to the doctors.

Tereshin released a video on his social media page about the surgery after the volume of vaseline had been taken out of his hands.
He even jokingly put that he might sell some of the chunks from his body; "These are my treasures...Get yourself a piece, it's 'sale' time."
The Russian then went on to tell the camera how different it felt with less of the weight in his arms; "It feels very weird, very unusual. My arm feels lighter...Now I am going through rehab, soon we will proceed with the next surgery."

Tereshin's last fight in the MMA ended up a defeat having tapped out via Submission within three minutes of the first round.
Dr. Melnikov from Sechenov Moscow State Medical University had warned the fighter: "Petroleum jelly saturates the muscles, under skin tissues and the skin itself.
"All that has to be removed, but we need to keep the vein, nerves and other functions of the limb." I think Kirill did not fully realise the consequences of what he had been doing."
