Brock Lesnar will be back in the cage within six months, according to his jiu-jitsu coach Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros.
We spoke with Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros — a 7-time World Jiu-Jitsu champ — who tells us the reigning UFC heavyweight champ “is getting better and that is the most important thing … He will be fine and be fighting again within 6 months.”
Medeiros adds, “I can just say that the heavyweights can stop laughing and get ready to start crying because the champion will be back soon.”
And judging by the video Lesnar’s camp released above, he is coming back as a universal soldier. “We can rebuild him.” Scary stuff.
In other heavyweight recovery news, Lil Nog says Big Nog is recovering well from his staph infection and will be back in the gym in a few weeks.
“Rodrigo will leave the [staph] infection to heal for about 15 or maximum 20 days. He’s good. The arm is already deflating, it had swollen as much as it was going to,” he told Brazilian site Terra, adding that he is not sure when his brother will be fit to fight.
“You have to wait for the infection to recede before returning to training. I do not know if he will be ready in time to fight at UFC 109 but within a few weeks he will return to training,” he explained.
As for GSP’s return to the Octagon, no date or event has been set for his title defense against Dan Hardy, but neither fighter is likely to get a homefield advantage. Dana says the fight will probably happen in Vegas. Dan Hardy doesn’t care. He says he’ll fight GSP on the moon.
