After being forced to withdraw from his UFC 119 rematch with Frank Mir, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira spoke to Tatame about his injury:
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.
I imagine they'll stick Nogueira in against the winner of the new fight between Mir and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. Either fight would be a rematch for Nogueira. Nogueira lost to Mir in their clash at UFC 92 when a visibly "off" Nog was knocked out after battling a bad staff infection in the weeks leading up to the fight. Back at PRIDE Final Conflict 2003 Nogueira defeated Filipovic in one of the greatest fights the sport has ever seen.
