As a result Big Nog now requires surgery, and he hitched a ride with Dana White back to Las Vegas after the event where he’ll immediately go into hospital to be treated.

White later described the Brazilan as “tough as nails” as he tweeted a picture of him relaxing on the plane as if he didn’t have a care in the world.
