Since he is having surgery on his nose, does that mean he will be on medical suspension until April 9th 2007 like i have heard here. I heard he had to pass some nasal test and if he didn't pass, he would be suspended.

I'm not sure how the injury rules work in the UFC but I've broken my nose many times and had surgery on it 3 times. A month, month and a half and he'll be almost good as new. They'll fix it, he'll have plastic splints in there for a month, they'll cut the stitch and pull out the splints. They'll check the nasal passage a few weeks after the splints come out to see if all is good.

The nose is really easy to break again after the surgery. A light sneeze will break it while the splints are in. That may keep him out a little longer.

i don't mean to make light of his injury, but does he really want a rematch with silva? i mean, i hope he's got good insurrence cause i sorta see another broken nose in the future. that is, unless Rich can figure out Silva's clinch.

anyway, hope he feels better, and hope he takes this loss as what it was, a loss.

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

A quick explosion would have broken the clinch but he didn't seem to have the gas... I think they should rematch... Eventually

Rich is a smart cookie...I bet his gameplan would be a little different this time. He said himself that he tought the clinch would be his sweet spot, and did not think that silva was going to be that strong in the clinch. So I bet Rich comes with a better gameplan, now that he knows how the puzzle pieces go together, he have a better shot a solving it. He is a very mentaly strong person, so I bet he bounces back.

He must clear his nose with a ENT (Ear Nost Throat) Doctor OR no fight until April 9th, 2007.
