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.

I don't think he'll be out for an entire year. Just to the end of this year, which is another 4 months.

In them pics his nose definitely looks like its been rebuilt, but I don't understand why he would bother until he retires?

At least it's not like he has a serious injury that needs fixed. He should still be able to do alot of training, as long as it doesn't involve him getting smacked in the face. It may do him good as others have said.
