Two different people, two different opinions. A few days ago on UFC Tonight, former Pride and interim UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was very happy with how his recent arm surgery went. Nogueira, who needed the surgery after ligament damage caused in his UFC on Fuel 10 loss to Fabricio Werdum, said the surgery was a success and that he could return to training in August. He also used the platform to respond to a challenge from Stefan Struve.
But it looks like his manager Ed Soares has a different view of things (via MMA Fighting):
"The doctors are saying he will be back training in three months."
Granted, Soares did say this on the MMA Hour the day before Nogueira told Ariel Helwani the above info. So which one is right? Who knows. But while I still expect Nogueira to meet Struve next, it might creep into early 2014 before the two men step into the octagon. I'm sure that's not a big deal to Struve, but Nogueira's not getting any younger.
