A true professional, didn’t even flinch.
Iâ€™m doing my third surgery within a month. There were three injuries that I had: my knee, my right hip and my left hip. I have these injuries for eight year, but about three years ago it started blocking me of training hard. I handled it, but I couldnâ€™t do my last fight and really, if you canâ€™t train 100%, you wonâ€™t do a good fight. I did these surgeries on the right time and Iâ€™m treating myself with the greatest hip doctor of the world, the guy guarantees Iâ€™ll be 100% for the second semester.
If I can fight on UFC Rio itâ€™ll be perfect, but if not Iâ€™m sure that in September Iâ€™ll be prepared to fight.
I think I did great fight, Iâ€™ve fought the best of my division, I didnâ€™t have an easy opponent. I really am one of the guys who fought great guys, but I have much more to show you, I am not done yet (laughs). My next goal is UFC Rio and to be among the tops of UFC. [tatame]
If he returns to the cage in Rio, It would have be almost a year and a half since we have seen “Big Nog” in action.
