I thought he had recovered after his fight with JZ? That was over two years ago...where is this guy? He needs to resurface and shake up someone's lightweight division.

I remember he had a pretty significant eye injury after taking a beating from GZ. I think it was a pretty big deal at the time, considered potentially career ending. Supposedly he's pretty well recovered. I know he's been working as an instructor in NYC, and there are rumors he would be back in April--I would assume fighting for K-1 Heros, as that's the organization he's signed to.
