“I Should Have Got a Mouthguard Earlier” Says Man with Smashed Teeth

Benny Tipper, currently training in Japan, confirms that he should have invested in a mouthguard before four of his teeth were smashed out by a stray knee.

“I was literally about to buy one, for about the last four years,” says Benny.

Benny said he’d even gone as far as putting a mouthguard in his Amazon shopping basket at least four times, but had become distracted by something on TV and not bought it.

“I had a couple of near misses that just chipped the edges off my front teeth, but I just kept putting it off.”

The “last straw” happened during sparring on Thursday night.

“We were going balls to the wall and I just flew headfirst towards his legs. He brought his knee up and I felt my teeth instantly shatter. That was the exact moment when I realised I should have bought that mouthguard after all.”

Tipper recommends to anyone who’s on the fence about buying a mouthguard, to “fucking hurry up and buy one you idiot. Not getting your teeth smashed is a lot better than having them all smashed.”
