maybe my math is out but I would read that to be more like 8-10 months rather a year. Looking into it standard sees to be around 3-4 months till atheletes return to training baseball players seem to return to playing after around 6 months so I think realistically because of the fear with wrestling I would guess closer to 10 months by the time he recovers and puts in a full camp.

If the surgury was scoped (minimal intrusion) rather than the a fully invasive surgury depending on how bad he was there are claims that can be cut in half. I will wait for a more concrete statement rather than jumping on conclusions based on limited information.

And he last fought in October so it will be over a year between title fights 13-15 months if everything goes fine and he doesn't injury his knee like he did last time.

meh this might make the division more interesting. And I won't really miss him. I've gone from a fan, to "meh", to "he bores me" now.

Don't care really. May have saved us from having to watch Werdum vs Velasquez. That would have been awful.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Cain has kept totally wrecking his opponents which Aldo has not. JDS was considered one of the best in the UFC for sure and was outclassed by Cain. Aldo had a pretty close 5 round victory over Frankie Edgar recently and did not dominate Chang Sung Jung until that shoulder gave up. Not as dominant as Cain have been though.

The other 3 guys in the top-5 (Andy Silva, GSP, Jon Jones) did not convince in their last fights.

Cain for the last 12 months has been the most dominant P4P fighter of UFC history, Kudos to him. I wish that he recovers.

In fact I think he killed the heavyweight division and made that division a bit boring. I would never want the best guys to get worse I want the other guys to get better. Levelling the field by injuries sucks big ways.
You throw 'P4P' around in a really strange way. Im not even sure you know what it means.

I feel bad for Cain. But with him out hopefully the god awful HW division can finally get some contenders. Right now their is just a bunch of pretenders rather then contenders.

Does Anyone really see Mark Hunt (love him), Travis Browne, JDS (after those 2 beatings), Roy Nelson, Big Nog, Werdum (maybe but he's old as shit) ever beating Cain.

Hopefully in the next year the UFC finds some fresh meat. The HW division needs it bad. Cain needs it bad. The guy needs someone to challenge him.

SMOOTH

Apparently right now your P4P #1 should be weak joints and tendons.
