Havine been forced to withdraw from the UFC 119 main event due to injuries, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira tells the TATAME that he's headed for hip surgery in addition to knee surgery, and hopes to be back in about 4 months. "I hurt my hips training and I’ll have to go on surgery. I’m only depending on a few exams, but I think it’ll be done by the weekend. The surgery will be on both sides of my hips, and I’ll operate my knee too. If everything goes alright I’ll be back on training in four months."
