Wanderlei Silva says recent facial surgery a necessity for “fresh beginning” at 185 pounds
Hoping to end some of the widespread speculation about his recent plastic surgery, Wanderlei Silva on late Friday released a new video blog to discuss the necessity of the procedure.
Silva said a massive amount of scar tissue required his surgeon to rework the area around his eyes and nose.
After the first post-surgery photos hit the online MMA world last month, many fans pointed to a “pulled-back” look to Silva’s eyes. While such a procedure is usually done to make one look younger, Silva said his surgery was all about necessity and wanting a fresh start for a run in the UFC’s middleweight division.
