WEC champ Brian Bowles’ broken hand may not require surgery

Injury update: WEC champ Brian Bowles’ broken hand may not require surgery



http://mmamania.com/2009/08/26/injur...quire-surgery/

WEC Bantamweight Champ Brian Bowles arrived at Turner Field last night to throw out the first pitch for the hometown Atlanta Braves.

Notice the cast on his left hand. He fractured it during his 135-pound title-capturing win over Miguel Torres a little more than two weeks ago at WEC 42.

Bowles confirmed earlier this week with MMAFanhouse that his injury might not require surgery to fix after all … a possibility that could have kept him sidelined for a very long time.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve talked to a couple of docs and gotten a couple of opinions. They popped it back in place - it was out of place pretty bad - and as long as it stays in place then no surgery. But if not then I’ll have to have surgery on it. It’s been a few days now and it’s still in place, so I think I’m going to be OK without having any surgery.”

Bowles was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission until Feb. 6, 2010, because of the fracture. That suspension, however, can be lifted as soon as he receives clearance from an orthopedic doctor.

Hopefully, the non-surgery route leads to a speedier recovery because a fantastic match up with current number one contender, Dominick Cruz, is waiting on deck.
