A UFC star was rushed to hospital after picking up a horror testicular injury, The Sun reports.
Chinese mixed martial artist Aoriqileng was taken to hospital after receiving a low blow during his fight against Daniel Marcos at UFC Vegas 86.
His visit was for a testicular ultrasound and a precautionary CT scan of his head and face.
The crazy fight saw four illegal moves made, including an eye poke and three low blows before it was called off.

Aoriqileng had just bounced back from one low blow when he attempted to throw a strike, with Marcos in the middle of performing a kick of his own and causing him to hit the bantamweight’s groin.
Following the final low blow, Aoriqileng was given five minutes to recover by referee Jason Herzog.
But the 30-year-old was unable to carry on, prompting Herzog to officially wave the bout off as a no-contest at 3:28 in the second round.
Aoriqileng’s manager, Wang Le, issued an update shortly after.
He told MMAMania: “He is okay.
“The structure of his testicles is okay, but the tubes around his testicles are swollen.”
Two more fighters were also transported to hospital following the Vegas showing.
Ihor Potieria and Fernie Garcia were both taken in for precautionary CT scans.
