Post Wanderlei Silva has facial surgery, out for the rest of the year!

Wand has had facial surgery back home in Brazil, ruling him out of any potential bout with Mike Bisping, or anyone else for the rest of the year for that matter.

MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that former PRIDE FC middleweight champion, Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva has undergone extensive facial surgery in Brazil ruling him out of his proposed fight with Michael Bisping in the UK.

After seeing pictures posted on a popular internet forum of the star, MMABay contacted a source in Las Vegas that shed light on the situation. Surgery of this type normally takes 3-4 weeks to recover from but due to circumstances beyond control, the Brazilian will have to sit out the rest of the year.

Wanderlei was all set to square off with UK star, Michael Bisping at UFC 105 on November 14th in Manchester, England but when MMABay contacted management at the Widnes based gym tonight we were told “The Count” had no opponent at this time, backing up what our source had told us in Brazil.

The pictures have had fans asking the question; “Is this an imposture?” due to the severe nature of the surgery, but we can confirm that it is Wanderlei himself. It is likely with time that his face will become more like what fans have been used to seeing.

We will have more on this story in the coming days.

Make sure to quote the text when posting an article.

Also, wrong section, moved to "UFC".

As far as the article goes, I never trust anything MMABay posts, so I will wait for a different source.

If it's true, that sucks.

Thanks for the heads up. There are quite a few different pics going around the net already...looks like this is for real.

Wand looks really different...hopefully it has fixed his scar tissue/breathing issues.

There is a pic in the article. I'll try and post it here. He looks crazy...

Pics attached.

It looks like he's had alot of scar tissue removed, and his nose rebuilt. Looks like an old version of young Wanderlei, before he'd been hit so often :-p

When MMABay "EXCLUSIVELY reveals" something while all the other trustworthy web sources don't, it usually means that it is not true.

Picture #1 was taken 08.14.2009 at 14:57:48
Picture #2 was taken 08.14.2009 at 14:56:58
Picture #3 was taken 08.14.2009 at 15:25:26

Are were taken by the same device, Adobe Photoshop CS4 was definitely used (Windows XP says so) which makes me think that the photos have been modified, but why is Wandy wearing a white t-shirt instead of black just 25 minutes later?
