Photo of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's arm after surgery (Pic)

Former UFC Interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira went under the knife last Friday (Dec. 16, 2011) to repair the broken arm he suffered against Frank Mir in the co-main event of UFC 140: "Jones vs. Machida" back on Dec. 10 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This is what it looks like seven days later, thanks to a timely run-in with UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, who tweeted this photo of "Minotauro" on Thursday night.

Nogueira, 35, recently returned to competition earlier this year after multiple surgeries to correct problems with his hip and knees and while he was only hit with a two-month medical suspension by the Ontario Athletics Commission, he likely won't see the inside of the Octagon for at least six months.

Perhaps more.
