MMA Legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, spoke to sherdog.com and revealed that he is fully recovered from the arm break he suffered at the hands of Frank Mir at UFC 140. He also says he is interested in fighting at UFC 153 in Rio next month.
“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.”
