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 "€œUltimate 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 "€œone 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.

At least there’€™s a bright side. Corassani did win the fight. No one looking at his record would smell anything fishy. Get it?
