surgery?

i dont think this is true but i figured id ask, awhile ago i heard some kids in school talking about how boxers get this bone or something with their nose removed so it doesnt break as often or so they dont die or something and recently someone said that they watched some documentary and said that mma fighters do it now too?

No, that's not the most retarded thing I've ever heard.

You can't die from getting your nose broken, the cartlidge wouldn't go into your brain. Either way, this dude is 12 times MMA HW champion, so you should ask him.

not true, and would be disfiguring. thats just not worth it

ive broke my nose something like 7 times...had surgery on it once, deviated septum...it sucks

a lot of boxers have deviated septums, so if you see some guy with food and drink coming out of his nose, he might know how to fight lol. kinda like cauliflour ears, got those 2 btw....
