Wanderlei has installed Rocky Balboa's chin. From now on, he won't get knocked out even if Cro Cop hits him with a left crescent kick, Henderson with his back fist or Rampage with a left hook!

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Practical. Removed lots of scar tissue, shaved brow back and fixed nose which caused breathing issues.

It's a recent proceedure, so expect his face to look strange untill it heals up. He'll look more like himself again in a few weeks.

His face looks healed man. I dont see from those pics (especially the third) how his face will look more like himself again in a few weeks? The scar tissue and war damage isn't going to grow back.

It should help prolong his career, if it's real then it is epic work. That third pic is insane. To be fair it looks like a completely different set of eyes on someones face but that might be just because he looks so different.

It's definitely taken years off of his face. It's strange to see these early thirty somethings whom look older than Coleman and Couture because they've engaged in so many wars, like your Nogs and your Silvas. Some might be upset that he's not fighting Bisping, but if this helps get him back on track and on his way to scoring wins, again, then so be it.
