Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira released this week that he requires surgery on his ACL after his latest loss inside the octagon, as well as adding he’s interested in fighting again when he returns from this latest set-back.

Noguerio, speaking via sources said:

“I’m going to need surgery. I had the same surgery on the left knee three years ago, and now it’s on the right knee.”

Following his loss in Abu Dhabi, Nogueira’s manager had this to say:
