Heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo (Minotauro) Nogueira was also in Los Angeles on Monday, seeing a specialist after suffering a broken arm in a loss to Frank Mir at UFC 140 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre on Saturday night.
The doctor's visit produced some good news for Big Nog.
The UFC tweeted that surgery won't be needed. Instead he'll wear an adjustable plastic brace using an ultrasound device twice a day for 20 minutes. He's expected back in the cage in no more than nine months. link
