Nick Diaz Has Surgery To Alleviate Cutting

Nick Diaz has a history of being cut in fights and after losing to K.J. Noons for the EliteXC lightweight championship due to them, Diaz decided enough was enough and underwent plastic surgery to alleviate scar tissue and hopefully prevent the California fighter from suffering future lacerations.
Diaz' trainer, Cesar Gracie, discussed the procedure and it's success to the media via conference call on Monday. "Over his career he's built up a lot of scar tissue, so it keeps cutting over and over on his ocular bone," explained Gracie.
"We had a plastic surgeon look at it. He said that Nick's ocular bones are extremely sharp, and he's always going to cut and keep building up scar tissue. So, fortunately, the plastic surgeon was able to remedy that by filing it down and making it smooth like someone that doesn't cut."
The outpatient surgery that took "a few hours" was a complete success by all accounts. "Before, Nick was constantly getting cut, even when he was rolling. I mean, it was weird," said Gracie. "But it's been a complete success and we're really pleased with it. It's going to really add to the longevity of his career."
"He was getting cut off silly stuff. So we're just thrilled that we can put that behind him," added Gracie. "Now when he loses, it can be because he got stopped, he got knocked out or something. Look at the Gomi fight, his face was a bloody mess, and he still came back and won because fortunately that doctor didn't stop the fight. He let it go."
Diaz has competed once since the plastic surgery, winning in impressive fashion over Katsuya Inoue in the DREAM promotion.
"Nick came out like the Nick Diaz of old that we're accustomed to seeing back in the day, really aggressive. Doing what he does," stated Gracie. "He looked really good."
"Nick is a really tough guy. I think, without getting cut up, you're going to see Nick is really hard to stop... We're excited that now he's going to have to be submitted or knocked out to lose the fight."

Found this article on MMAWEEKLY. I don't know how to link it.

I heard about this and am glad he did it. He's a pretty solid fighter, top 10 in LW and WW in my opinion. I want to see a rematch with Noons. +rep.

So his surgeon actually filed down the bones near his eye? Does that mean Diaz looks different? I'd like to see a before and after picture just for fun.

Maybe with a couple of more plastic surgeries he can switch to a career in modelling...

I doubt it will be a huge difference (when his skin is closed over the bone edge anyway ) its actually a very tiny bit of shaving they do in these procedures- basically just like sanding the sharp edges off a plank.

I've been looking into having something similar done for my shoulder since it looks a bone ridge in my shoulder socket might be responsible for my recent rotator cuff tear.

I guess the procedure was done before his last fight. It was only released publicly recently. Also I think if his brother got the same procedure it would help him as well. Nate bleeds like a pig too.
