“The procedure will help Wanderlei breathe better. It will improve not just his quality as an athlete but also his daily life. It’s a region that has been badly punished and was recuperated for him to perform better,” declared Rafael Alejarra, Wand’s physical conditioning coach.
At the moment Wand is still in recovery and there is no forecast as to when he will return to the octagon.
