    Injury Update

    For all of you who are concerned about Rich's injuries, here is what we know so far. His nose was reset in the locker room right after the fight. A few days later, after meeting with the Doctor, it was decided that he would need surgery on his nose. He had his blood work done on 10/18, his surgery is scheduled for 10/19 and then he will have a post-op visit on 10/23 to make sure everything is okay. Rich and his team appreciate all the support from his fans, and we will continue to update you as we get new information.

    It was pretty bad. Worse than any of the 5 times I've broken mine.

    She's a nurse... and the first 2 times it wasn't reset. Which is probably why it rebroke. :mamoru:

    I heard he's rumored to have a rib fracture/void as well, any truth to this ? Regardless it will be 6 months before he fights....again.

    Getting the deviated septum fixed so he can breathe properly
    Mine is still deviated, which sucks... on the outside, my nose looks pretty straight tho

    Serioulsy, look at Ken Shamrock's nose. Looks like he didn't even bother to reset it

    You want bad, ever seen a pitcher that got nailed in the nose with a hardball after it was hit? He didn't have much of a nose left. It pretty well just exploded

    yea i dont think, if true, will be posted up on his page until it gets confirmed.... but i kind of hope he fucked his rib, it would give an excuse ( kind of )to his performance in the clinch.... poor rich.

    I just hope that Dana doesn't try to screw him over when his contract is up... Of course, if that happens maybe he would make a jump to PRIDE?? That could make for some interesting match-ups....

    Wow, good point, I hadn't even thought about it that way yet. Dude fights twice in one year now, he must be getting frusterated with all these injuries.

    Did you see the one that the Redskins kicker got on Thanksgiving a couple years back? He came off the field and his nose was somewhere under his right eye.

    neveada state athletic comission rules, i think its something like, if you get a broken hand, wrist, foot, ect... something substantial.... or you get ko'd real bad... you cant fight for 6 months... im not sure exactly the rules and regulations, my explanation might be a bit off and missing some facts, but thats about the jist of it :naughty:
