source: graciemag.com

Out of the spotlight since his loss to Rich Franklin at UFC 99, in July, Wanderlei Silva has been taking a break from training. According to information unearthed by GRACIEMAG.com, the fighter underwent and operation on his septum two weeks ago.

“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.

Stay tuned to GRACIEMAG.com and we’ll be back shortly with further information on Wanderlei Silva and the UFC.

Mmascuttlebutt.com is reporting that Vanderlei has had a "not the face" clause added to his UFC contract.  If Anderson ever gets to fight him, he'd better be prepared to work the body.

I read Marcus Davis had this to. They shafe (?) down the bone around the eyes to make it less sharp and less likely to cut. Might have gone a little oveboard with the brow height, if the pics are real.
