MMA Quick Quote: Murilo Bustamante wants to return to fighting in 2010

Murilo-bustamante_medium

“Surely it cheers me up. I have got plans of fighting in 2010 and let’s see how it will work. I’m preparing myself, I’m in Brazil also to train and get into the pace. We’re studying proposals and let’s see what happens. There’s nothing set but I have been training to fight whereas last year I didn’t have the time to prepare properly, just training with kimono and giving classes.”

-- Former UFC champion Murilo Bustamante is back in Brazil from United States where he has expanded the Brazilian Top Team headquarters. The veteran explains Renzo Gracie’s return to the action excites him to also get back in the saddle in 2010. But can the 43-year-old -- who defeated Dave Menne in 2002 to capture the 185-pound belt and then defended it once (Matt Lindland) before bolting to the "Land of the Rising Sun" -- still compete at the highest level or has the sport passed him by after more than two years on the sidelines?
