UFC’s Akira Corassani sporting new nose after plastic surgery
Akira Corassani’s nose is on the mend. With an assist from the UFC. The “Ultimate Fighter” alum had his schnoz broken in five places Saturday night by a Maximo Blanco illegal knee at the TUF Finale. He posted photos Tuesday on his Twitter and Instagram of his face post-surgery.
Corassani, 31, wrote on Twitter he got more than 30 injections both inside and outside his nose and called it “one of the most uncomfortable and painful things.”
Corassani credited the UFC with sending him to top New York plastic surgeon Tal Dagan. He definitely needed the best.
The Swedish featherweight’s nose was a hot mess after the brutal knee, which resulted in Blanco getting disqualified.
