A bodybuilder renowned for his grotesque arms was submitted by blogger Oleg Mongol within three minutes of his MMA debut at a gym in Abakan, Russia.

Kirill Tereshin, a 23-year-old often nicknamed "Popeye" and "Bazooka Arms," became internet-famous for injecting synthol into his arms which caused them to swell and look out of proportion compared to the rest of his body.Advertisement

Injecting synthol is a controversial do-it-yourself procedure which some bodybuilders have used to add a temporary implant into the muscle, causing immediate enlargement. It does have drawbacks, however, as it causes muscle deformity.
