PRIDE-vet turned UFC-welterweight Akihiro Gono recently had surgery to repair the hand injury that forced him to pull out of a bout with Jon Fitch at UFC 82. He wrote about the experience on his blog yesterday, and Suki MMA was kind enough to translate:
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.
Oh man. This is going to get him so much tail. “My project to be an attractive guy” — can we cast McConaughey and Hudson in this shit already?!
P.S.: I love how losing the use of his right hand is what compelled Gono to start thinking about getting a wife. Trust me dude, as long as old lefty is functional, single life isn’t that bad.
P.P.S.: “Pain Killer Pills” is an awesome band name.
P.P.P.S.: If anyone can translate Suki’s translation of “I should be competitive to be chosen by my dream girl though,” it would be a huge help. Broken English on blogs seems to be the theme of the day…
