Swelling near the eye?

Question after a fight is over and the is massive fluid in the swelled area why doont they take a small needle and drain the fluid or do they?

Been watching too many Rocky movies have we? :)

That swelling is tissue and blood. And do you really want to be puncturing an area that is already the number one spot for cuts on a fighter? I wouldn't want to add any extra tissue damage to that area.
