Ed Soares: Big Nog takes a licking and keeps on ticking

Big Nog's Manager Ed Soares believes well see him come back, hopefully in time for the Rio card. Who would you like to see him face off against should he return? Winner/Loser of Schaub/Cro Cop? Maybe loser of Mir/Nelson? Or do you believe he'd be better off retiring?

"There's no doubt that 'Big Nog' has been in a lot of battles. people have said he's like the Rocky Balboa of MMA. I never understood why Timex didn't want to sponsor him; he takes a licking and keeps on ticking. But I can tell you that he still feels good. He still feels like he's got some great fights in front of him. His big goal is to try to be able to fight on that Brazil card. He's going in for his second hip surgery, I believe, in a couple weeks. He's already had his knee and his other hip done. But the recovery is coming along well. He's doing a lot of physical therapy. I believe we'll see 'Nog' come back."
