Ricardo Arona in talks with the UFC

Quote:
Considered one of the best light heavyweight fighters in the MMA for many years, Ricardo Arona is recovering from a knee injury, suffered in his last fight against Marvin Eastman. “I’m doing physical therapy, taking care of my knee. I hope I’ll be fully recovered by June and I’ll be back to fights in September or October”, Arona said. “The recovery is really well”.



But if you think Ricardo is only taking care of the injury you’re wrong. Focused on a great return, the former Pride fighter is negotiating to make the return in an international event, and it’ll probably be in the UFC. “I stopped (the negotiations) because of the injury, but some things happened, some managers called me with some projects I’ll release soon, but I’m sure I’ll be back in an international event”.



Asked is this return would be in the UFC, Arona confirmed. “I can’t talk about this project right now, but there’s a connection between me and the UFC now, something concrete that I didn’t have before. My return will be in the end of the year and will be in the UFC”, Arona revealed, exclusively to TATAME.com. “I’ll be worried about my performance, my knee and my body. I wanna do my best in every fight. I’m used to big competition like the UFC, I wanna be ready”.

I'd like to see him start in SF and face Mousasi first.

I like Arona, and wrote a little piece about him wanting to get into the UFC a few months back for my blog site (that I kept up for about 2 weeks ). I'd definitely be interested in seeing him in the UFC. I think the fact that he's never been really entertaining has counted against him, he's a very talented fighter. He beat Wanderlei Silva on the way to reaching the PRIDE 2005 Middleweight tournament final, he's also got wins over Dan Henderson, Alistair Overeem, Murilo 'Ninja' Rua, Guy Mezger, Dean Lister, Kazushi Sakuraba; and he took Fedor to a decision. I hope he gets over his knee injury and and is fighting for the UFC by the end of the year.
