Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Hopes for UFC Return in Spring 2011

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is recovering from recent surgeries on his knee and hip that forced him out of UFC 119’s main event against Frank Mir and hopes to return to UFC action in the spring, the former heavyweight champ told MMAFighting.

Nogueira (32-6-1) suffered a first-round knockout to upcoming heavyweight challenger Cain Velasquez in February after topping Randy Couture last August for his fourth win in five fights.

No date or opponent has been set for Minotauro’s return.
