I will have surgery in the next couple of weeks and will need about 6-8 weeks to heal. The Doctor told me he wouldn't worry about making the nose look pretty since I am a fighter and all. Fact is my looks are what got me signed with Zuffa had I not been fighting I would of been in that fashion show in Vegas.
