If he did it, like someone else suggested, to help breathing then I understand.
I think he should have maybe had it done when he retired though.
Come on man he's not done it so he can look pretty again. IF that's the way he felt then he's in the wrong business.
Getting rid of the insane amounts of scar tissue will prevent him getting cut every fight. I'm sure Nick Diaz and Marcus Davis have had similar surgery done around their eyes to remove scar tissue. While he was at it Wand had work done to correct his breathing.
In a fight if you are bleeding and have your mouth wide open that hardly sends a good message to the fans/your opponent, and more importantly the judges.
It will help prolong his career down at 185.
