Krzysztof Soszynski feels UFC 131 is enough time to rehab from surgeries

UFC light heavyweight, Krzysztof Soszynski gives some insight on his long-awaited return to the octagon after undergoing a series of surgeries over the past few months, adding his eye is on the UFC 131 card on June 11th, the promotions next visit to Vancouver, Canada.

Soszynski, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“I guess my pain tolerance is pretty high. From what I’ve been told by my doctors after the surgeries, I should be on my feet right away. It’s the best way to get back right off the bat. The very next day I was already walking around the house and moving a little bit. They had me on crutches for about a day or so, 24 hours, but after that I was able to start moving around. I was back in the gym three days later, helping out some of my teammates.”

“I feel that’s enough time for me to rehab and get back into the cage (at UFC 131). As far as opponents, I’ve always been wanting to fight Stephan Bonnar for the third time. I think the first fights have been great and I think that if we step into the cage again together, it will be one for the ages. Also guys like Forrest Griffin, [Vladimir] Matyushenko, a guy like Matt Hamill — I would love to step into the cage with those guys and see if I belong in the upper echelon of the top 10.”

“Last year was a grueling year for me. I had three wars. Two with Stephan Bonnar and a three-rounder with Goran Reljic, all three really tough fights. I’ve been fortunate enough to win a couple of bonuses as well. … It really helps me out to be able to kind of sit back a little bit, heal my body first and most importantly before I jump at the chance to fight right away. I’m not a young guy. I’m 33 years old. My body’s not the 25-year-old machine it was back in the day when I was able to go through anything and everything. I’m going to take my time. I’m going to heal 100 percent before I do any crazy physical activities.”
