David Terrell loses to himself … again.

When rumors started swirling that David Terrell had pulled out of the UFc 78 card with an injury, I assumed people were just repeating a joke. After all, Terrell’s rep as injury prone is practically legend … but no way he’d have to pull out of a card AGAIN. Right? Right???

Wrong! Terrell is out yet again, this time with a serious ankle injury. For the newbs among us who don’t know David’s history of tooling himself during training, here’s a history care of MMAJunkie:

The 29-year-old Terrell, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Cesar Gracie, pulled out of a UFC 62 fight with a sinus infection, a UFC 66 fight with an elbow injury, and now a UFC 78 fight because of an ankle injury. It’s been 19 months since Terrell (6-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) last fought professionally.

This is shitty news for the UFC, who were banking on Terrell to breath some life back into their middleweight division. He was once thought to be the next big thing, but at this point I’ll be amazed if the UFC would trusts him to attend a show without getting in a 10 car pile up on the way. The guy’s either got a voodoo curse on him or the world’s most retarded training partners. No word on if Sokoudjou was involved.

  • Feel bad for the guy but he must have been the most evil person to walk the earth in a past lifetime. Bad Karma
    It’s time for him to quit training, buy a plastic bubble or a room with padded walls and then just show up to his UFC fights.

  • Also even if he stays injury free and makes all way to A-bomb Anderson Silva. Just imagine how injured he would come out of that fight. Anderson might collapse a lung or something

    I am really tired of being tricked into believing that DT is going to fight again. I get excited to see him fight and then I am let down every time….He has to be done in the UFC, you can’t promote a guay that never fights…

  • Accomando says:

    If Terrell ever wants to fight again, he needs to stop training before his fights, plain and simple.

  • Yeah … just cardio and that’s it. Unless a treadmill ate his foot, which is possible.

  • Mr. Theplague says:

    I think he’s subconsiously doing this to himself because he deosn’t have the big gorilla balls you need to step into the octagon.

  • Accomando says:

    “…David Terrell loses to himself … again…”

    That headline kills me.

  • Well maybe it isn’t a total loss. The UFC could possibly fill that fight with the most anticipated match up in MMA history…….Drumroll….
    Danny Abbadi vs. Andy Wang.

  • Mr. Theplague says:

    I personally think Abbadi/Wang could headline their new years card if Chuck/Wand falls through, and Monstah Lobstah could fill in for either in a pinch.
