Rodrigo ‘Big Nog’ Nogueira has surgery on broken arm

From Tatame

The last diagnostic given by John Itamura, a doctor pointed out by Ultimate, who evaluated the injury suffered by Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira when fighting Frank Mir, as he was submitted by a kimura and didn’t tapp out – what resulted on a humerus broked -, was that the heavyweight fighter wouldn’t ha veto go thought surgery. But it seems like the plans have changed. Rodrigo was operated last Friday (16th) at Vail, Colorado, and the surgery was a success. The doctors say he might return to the trains in June. Rodrigo went to Vail and went through new tests, which pointed out the need of the surgery. His biceps wasn’t touched during the process. The “entrance” was made on the triceps, what means he won’t lose strenght on this very arm.
