Big Nog Injured, Out Three Months

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is facing yet another injury that will sideline him for an extended period of time.

Following his loss earlier this month to Fabricio Werdum, Big Nog has learned that he will be out for three months to repair ligament damage in his arm, according to his manager, Ed Soares, who released the news earlier this week on The MMA Hour.

Nogueira lost the fight to Werdum via armbar at UFC on FUEL TV 10 on June 8 marking the fourth loss in his last seven fights.

Soares also noted in the interview that Nogueira had no plans to retire despite the combination of the injury and the loss to Werdum.
