Ricardo Arona needs knee surgery, aims for UFC once recovered
http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news/439...recovered/

Arona was one of my favorite fighters in Pride. He had a really stiff, smothering style, with brutal leg kicks and a strong ground game. I thought he was too busy dicking down chicks in Brazil to even care about MMA anymore, but apparently his goal is to make it to the UFC. I hope that it eventually happens. Age could be an issue though.

well it doesn't seem like his ring age is that old. i could see him making another run.

he has a good style for the UFC. he's physically powerful and good leg kicks.

he brutalized sakuraba really bad.

Classic photo. Captures the spirit and brutality of a fight. Arona definitely worked him pretty bad.

Yeah, his age might not be too bad of an issue since he hasn't taken punishment in several years and I'm sure he's kept himself in great shape. I guess he'll only be 36 if he returns after 2014.

36 isn't that old.

he could make another run for the title if his heart is into it.

If he does decide to come back, it wont be until 2015 and he will be 37...I hate the fact that a fighter of his level has been sidelined for so long, but we're talking about 2-3? knee surgeries and 8 years later. As dominant as he was, and i personally didnt like him at the time in pride, i would love to see him fight again. Made wand look like a fucking amateur. I was so happy when rampage and shogun came in and knocked him the fuck out. I guess the question is whether or not he will still be capable of competing amidst a beaten, but still competitive 205 division.

I miss his handsomeness. He should've sorted out those injuries a long time ago though, guy's been inactive for most of his prime years.

kek you’re sounding like a loco, CTsar. It’s like you’re arguing with someone who isn’t even there.
