Abstract

As a result of its superficial location, the peroneal nerve is prone to compression injuries. This is a case report of an acute unilateral foot drop which occurred during a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) contest, specifically as a result of direct blunt trauma to the left peroneal nerve, without an accompanying fracture of the fibula.
