Ricardo Arona Healed and Back in Training!
By Eduardo Alonso
The Abu Dhabi champion was forced to step back from PRIDE 17 and PRIDE 18 due to his injury. He attempted to return to training abit too soon and he felt the injury again, so he decided to take some time off and rest during the holidays. Finally, Arona began to feel healthy again and he had an x-ray done last Friday to check the status of the injury. Fortunately, the results were positive, and the injury is practically healed! With that Ricardo told FCF that he is back in training: “The doctor told me to take easy at first, and then gradually start to get back to full training. I almost don’t feel any pain right now, and the x-ray’s results were very good. I’m already lifting weights and doing some technical training.”
Ricardo Arona is waiting to see how his training develops and also on a contact from DSE to know if he will fight or not at PRIDE 19, but he hopes he will be ready to fight by February 22.
