Big Nog: I'm 100% recovered


"My recovery is 100 percent. My physical therapist, we worked a lot, sometimes six, seven hours a day. I tried getting better for July but I got hurt again. I think it was too soon. I broke my bone in December and I started to train again at the end of March. I think it was too soon. Now, it's totally recovered and I started to train again in mid-July. I feel my arm is getting stronger, getting faster. I feel all my skills are getting better and I'm ready to go. I'm training every day, doing my strength and conditioning, little by little and I hope to fight soon. I'm just waiting on confirmation from the UFC."

Too bad Mir is fighting Corm. It would be sweet to have Big Nog return starting with redemption.

Great news! I can't wait to see him back in the cage. He may be an aging veteran, but I think he is still very dangerous, on the feet and (probably to a lesser extent at this point) on the ground. There are so many fights to make with him too, Kongo would be great, but honestly there aren't many heavyweights i wouldn't want to see him fight.
