Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira targets second quarter return to the octagon

Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira gives some insight on his recovery from triple surgeries over the past six months, something that helped correct injuries he’s been carrying with him as long as eight years.

Nogueira, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“I’m doing my third surgery within a month. There were three injuries that I had: my knee, my right hip and my left hip. I have these injuries for eight year, but about three years ago it started blocking me of training hard. I handled it, but I couldn’t do my last fight and really, if you can’t train 100%, you won’t do a good fight. I did these surgeries on the right time and I’m treating myself with the greatest hip doctor of the world, the guy guarantees I’ll be 100% for the second semester.”
