Gono Discusses Hand Surgery

Akihiro Gono, who pulled out of his fight with Jon Fitch at UFC 82, recently had surgery to repair his injured hand. He wrote about the surgery on his blog yesterday which was translated by Suki MMA:

My operation went well and I left the hospital yesterday. I hope I recover soon. It was a 5 hours operation, cutting a part of bone in radius and transplanting it in my right hand. I have never been so tired and feeling destroyed like this time. It was extremely tough operation and I am having the worst pain ever after the operation. I almost gave up and ran away from everything. Although, I have nothing to do but fighting , so I continue to being MMA fighter.

I couldn’t sleep well because my right hand is in pain even if I take pain killer pills. I realized how hard to do everything by my left hand. I want to get married so bad now. I’m 33 years old and this is my first time to dream about getting a wife. I want someone who is attractive and respectful. I should be competitive to be chosen by my dream girl though.

Anyway, thank you for supporting me and my operation went well. After dinner, I will study English which is a part of my project to be an attractive guy.

I wonder if he meant to start a new paragraph when talking about his desire to get married. Or maybe not being able to use his right hand really is the root of his desire for a wife.
