    Depends.

    If your training a good few times a week, you could be fighting in a few months.

    Or if you take the pauljono route to training, could be about 12 months mate.

    Yeah, he was talking in an interview about Tsuyoshi Kosaka catching him with a punch that knocked one of his contacts out in their UFC 18 fight, and he was saying how it messed his vision up.

    With the sheer amount of people with vision impairmant in the world; it's innevitable some fighters will have it
