    Noses get broken, it's kinda something you have to come to terms with when you're involving yourself in a sport that involves people punching and kicking you in the face. If you're that worried about it, take up another hobby.

    I've been lucky like that, my own nose has never been broken, it's been bloodied etc, of course, such things are inevitable, but never broken.

    I've been trying to master the Omega face block technique.

    So far i have the first part down, but i'm having trouble working it into a combo.

    See the trick is first removing any bone or cartilage your nose may have. He can mush his nose completely into his face, and it is kinda disturbing.

    That's probably his philippino genetics. They have weird mushy noses.

    I remember that video, I think it was the GA Throwdown? He was mentioning that being hit in the face didn't bother him when someone just randomly hit him.

    It wasn't actually random, he instructed someone to punch him in the face (because he's dumb)

    Ah right, I haven't watched it in a while. The reason why I worked so much on defence was to avoid hits to the fact. Don't misunderstand me, I don't suddenly stop fighting or anything when recieving one, I just dislike them as much as a normal guy.

    I'm in the same boat as you, Foley, it's just another good reason to keep your hands up. I always keep my rear hand at my cheek ready to parry, and when I'm throwing my rear, I keep my lead in front of my face to parry.

    Though, I've never had my nose broken, or even felt like it was broken... or a nose bleed from sparring. I've got Frank Shamrock's invincible rubber nose.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
