He also reveals who he wants to fight...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (34-8-1 MMA, 5-4 UFC) mentioned he may be returning later than his original projected date of March from an injury in which he strained a ligament in his arm this past June. He also mentioned some of the fighters he'd like to return against.
On fighting Roy Nelson: "If it's [Nelson], I think it will be a good fight because the guy is tough. (He's) the kind of guy I like to fight."
On when he'll be back: "[The UFC was] talking about returning in March, but I don't feel ready to go yet. I'm trying to push (the fight) to April or May."
On who else he'd like to fight: "I want to fight Werdum again. I think he's dangerous on the ground. But I think I can fight him better than the last time. Josh Barnett, he's in a really good position right now. He's the type of fighter I like to face."
