Big Nog back in the gym, hungry, wants Summer return

by Damon Martin | source:

Big Nog is recovering from multiple surgeries, but his manager, Ed Soares, told MMAWeekly Radio that the fans should expect him back returned to form.

“His recovery, his therapy is getting really good. His physical therapy, he’s doing really, really well. He’s walking better than he’s walked since I’ve known him. They fixed a lot of his injuries, and he’s recovering very, very well,” .

“He’s hungry. He wants to get back in there. A lot of people in the world, and a lot of people in the MMA world, think ‘oh Nogueira has had it, his best days are behind him,’ but I think people are going to be surprised when they see how well and how prepared when Rodrigo comes back.”

“The number one thing on his mind is getting back in that Octagon and showing the world who Rodrigo Nogueira is."

“We’re hoping by the end of summer, early fall."

Rodrigo Minotauro carries on in recovering from recent operations to his knee and hip. After putting in a great deal of effort in physiotherapy, as he continues to do, Mino has already ventured back to training.

“I started boxing again three weeks ago, and today I had my first wrestling training session. I’m also doing physiotherapy all the time, and I’ve been running for the last three weeks too,” he told this past Wednesday.

The black belt still isn’t 100% recovered, though, he says. However, his recovery is coming along well.

“Sometimes the pain bothers me a bit, but I’m still in treatment and that’s what’s important. I worked really hard in physiotherapy over the last four months and the results have been great.”

The only fight I can think of where I'd have trouble NOT rooting for Nog would be another Fedor rematch, and deep down I'd be wanting him to win probably. Big Nog is the man.
