    Thought you couldn't fight anymore after a nose job .Wouldn't it break much easier and stuff? Never happend. Ircc Shane Mosley and Oscar de la Hoya did the same thing.

    I'm getting a septhoplasty next month, got hit hard by a straight shot and can't properly breath out of my left nose anymore. Anyone knows how long it will take untill i can spar again?

    Good luck, and a very nice sneaky way of getting your nose job story into the heavies by mentioning fighters who have also gotten nose jobs.

    Some fighters should get some of that silicone implanted around their chin

    I had my nose broken maybe 10 times in my life, first time via a headbutt aged 15, after that all street fights, then final one was in an mma fight aged about 30 yo (head movement was never my strong point :confused:) and was getting sick of the difficulty I had breathing through it especially trying to sleep at night so opted for the nose job a few years back. Doc straightened it up fairly well though not quite perfect but the main thing is I can breathe pretty good through it now. It does feel vulnerable though and I'll be damned if I let someone bop me on the bugle again :D

    lots of fighters get a broken nose during fights. do you think all of them had to retire afterwards?

    I'm pretty sure he got like a facelift and scar tissue removal. I don't recall him getting a nose job. I could be wrong. But maybe his surgeon is just better than yours.

    I don’t think you need to tell us about the lack of head movement...

    IIRC, during his UFC run, he said that he did a special surgery that helped him breath much better...

    Yah i had septoplasty for deviated septum. Doc recommended 2 weeks until I could roll again. Striking will probably be more. Be warned, that shit will be sensitive as hell for a long time, and it takes a while to build up your confidence again. I was really worried about getting accidentally headbutted or kneed, and I favored it a lot while rolling.
