Default Stephan Bonnar bit by giant spider while detained by Bahrain airport security (pics)



Quote:
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Stephan Bonnar has a big personality, which can sometimes rub people the wrong way.

One such instance occurred last year, when "The American Psycho" got into it publicly with UFC Welterweight Josh Koscheck, regarding Bonnar using Koscheck's likeness on one of his "Trash Talking Kids" t-shirts.

Bonnar appeared on HDNet's "Inside MMA" earlier tonight (Apr. 23, 2012), discussing his recent trip to Bahrain where he, Rich Franklin and Keith Jardine visited with some U.S. troops who were serving overseas. Apparently, Bonnar and his shirts are back in the news, and you'll never guess what kind of trouble his clothing line got him into this time:
Quote:
"We're getting ready to leave Bahrain, and I get detained at the airport. Jardine and Franklin get on the flight, and they take me in the room. They're asking me all these questions, and they're furious. One guy's comin' in the room and pointin' at me, all furious, like that. And, what I think is that, I had on the 'Young Assassin' shirt, with Melvin Guillard, and there's a guy with a turban with his brains spillin' out. I don't think they liked that too much."

"There was only one flight out for the day at 9:30 p.m. The United flight that I was on. They kept me at the airport so long, I missed my flight. I had to wait till the next day to get on the flight. So, I'm tired. I'm sleeping at the airport, and all of a sudden, I wake up to a burning sensation on my leg. It scared me. I went and brushed down on my leg and, sure enough, a spider about the size of my hand comes crawling out of my pant leg and takes off runnin'! I couldn't believe my eyes! This big camel spider goes under the door. I try to chase it. I lose it, and then, my God, my leg swells up, I get a fever, it's gettin' infected...but, hey, I'm gettin' the heck out of there. The next night, I'm on that 9:30 flight, I'm ready to board that flight when, lo and behold...THAT flight gets canceled! So I'm stuck there another day! So, I had the option of going in for an antibiotic IV or stay in the hospital a few days, but instead, I opted to go the oral route, three different kinds of antibiotics, and I got on that flight that next day and got the hell out of there! God bless America!"
In addition to telling wacky stories about his foreign traveling misadventures, Bonnar also wanted to give his fans an update on his health status, as well as how training is going.

Spoiler: It involved a hammer and stem cells. Would you expect anything less at this point?
Quote:
"You know, it's hard to get stuff done when you're training for a fight. I'm trying to get the 'punch buddies' going. We've been through some roadblocks, but we've overcome 'em. I spent a couple months really pouring into that. Then, training again, and, being honest with you, I'm getting old. The knees are feeling bad. So, I went down to Florida, to a doctor who specializes in stem cell procedures. They pounded a nail into my pelvis, drew some of that pelvis blood out of the original stem cells, poppin' my fat out, harvest up some stem cells and pump 'em up into my knees. Just had that done before I went overseas to visit our troops. Next week I'll be doing a seminar and a fight show in Illinois. After that, I'm gonna start training again."
If you missed Bonnar and his outlandish tales, here is a video he shot himself recently, where he details the story of his Bahrainian wild ride:

I'm sorry but that was pretty stupid and disrespectful to wear a shirt like that. I'm not saying he intentionally did it, but also think it's a bit common sense.

Yeah, that was a dumb shirt to wear. It would be like an Arab wearing a shirt with the twin towers falling down and trying to get on an airplane in America. I sure as hell would hope THAT guy would be detained too.

Funny video...I'm glad he has a sense of humor.

"...they left my ass here."

You think Rich and Keith waved goodbye or just pretended they weren't with him?
