"I'm really happy. The surgery was such a success and I've been working so hard with the physical therapy that I've already made some movement on the ground a few days ago using 70 percent of my power. My main goal is to work on my shrunken tendon. Besides physical therapy, I'm using a ‘Dim Fist' machine overnight. That machine works on extending my tendon.
"On November 5, I'm going to Tokyo, Japan and right after that I return to California to start my MMA training. I believe that by March, I'll be back to the ring."
"I thought (Josh Barnett) was a great acquisition (for Strikeforce). Barnett is a really tough heavyweight. I haven't thought about facing him yet. My goal now is either a rematch with Fedor or (one) with Overeem for the belt. But actually the most important thing for me is not who they will choose, but that my body is 100 percent recovered, so I can show to the ones who thought I was lucky that I was actually ready and pretty well-trained to fight Fedor."
