Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera has returned to training ahead of schedule following surgery to repair a snapped femur. Big Nog got his arm broken courtesy of a Frank Mir kimura at UFC 140 in December.

The Brazilian outlet UOL Esporte Lutas quoted Nogueira (translated by Orcus):

"I felt very good, I missed being able to train. I was only supposed to do ‘shadow' training, but I couldn't (hold myself).
I still need another three weeks of physical therapy to sharpen my boxing, and after that I will call Master De La Riva and start training jiu-jitsu. I believe I'll be back in a month's time.

"Soon Junior dos Santos will be coming here to train for his fight against Alistair Overeem and thereafter it will be Big Foot and Anderson Silva coming to train. I need to be 100% to train with these guys because they're tough."

Check it!

Glad to hear I love big nog and don't think its time to retire because he whooped schuabs ass and mirs til he made the stupid mistake of trying to tap mir. Like Rampage I still think he can battle with and even beat top 10 fighters still.

personally I'd rather see GG vs Big Nog, but a Nelson fight would be good too

I'm glad to hear this. That was a brutal break to watch. I like Nog, so I'm looking forward to seeing him back!

Hope he isn't returning too quickly. I felt a little uneasy when GSP came back from his injury rather quickly and he ended up reinjuring himself
