    Probably some of you guys already know this, but I just thought I´d share a few details they were showing today in a program in Combate Channel about when Big Nog fought Schaub.
    He was coming from a layoff of 18 months, after having 3 surgeries and he was still wearing crutches and unable to walk at all when he accepted the fight. He really wanted to fight in front of the crowd in Rio de Janeiro after all those years.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    His fisiotherapist was even using expressions like "learn to walk again" to refer to Big Nog's health condition. She said they had less than 3 months to do the whole fisiotherapy alongside the camp for the fight against a Schaub that was still game and was on a 4 fight win streak with 3 KOs.

    Enjoy the results of his hard work.

    Nogueira is an inspiration.Pity he wasted rest of his shape by not tapping to Mir, he looked pretty good against Schaub and Mir, later he looked bad.Watching Struve fight was so sad.Pity he retired after 3 straight losses, but good that he enjoys life on retirement and that UFC gave him an interesting job.Today fighters like Minotauro are almost gone

    The old school guys are way tougher than the new generation. Taking year(s) off in between fights was unheard of, especially if you were physically able.

    which in hindsight when he beat them meant absolutely fucking nothing.
