Manager: ‘Big Nog’ out at least three months
At the UFC on Fuel TV 10, Antonio Rodrigo was submitted by Fabricio Werdum by arm bar. Although Nogueira did eventually tap, he did hold out enough to suffer a somewhat serious injury that will put him on the shelf for a while:
“The doctors are saying he will be back training in three months,” Soares said.
While Soares said he didn’t know who Nogueira wants to fight in his return, he said the Brazilian legend doesn’t have any plans to call it quits.
“He’s still a top 10 heavyweight in the world,” Soares said.
