    Looks like we wont be seeing Shogun fight anytime soon. I just had my ACL reconstructed and it is a long road to recovery. Its been about 5 months for me and so far im about 70% what i was athletic wise.

    I bet it takes Shogun well over a year before he trys to fight again. If he does he may never be the same

    Im wondering why he waited so long to get this done. He has had the knee problem for some time now. It will be a while for him but who knows what his return will be like. I had my pcl redone in Jan along with some other stuff and last wed on the other knee had some cartilage taken out and my knee cap realigned and I def know Im not anywhere close to where I was.

    We have to remember these guys have their whole lives to commit to rehab whereas we wouldnt be able to do so. I wouldnt be surprised if he has a few healthy doses of HGH shot in there to assist in recovery.

    alot of guys decide to rehab it instead of have it worked on. Liddel had it rehabed. The reason is because the downtime is much shorter

    He's still young and still has a long career ahead of him.

    Damn, he was on top of the world for a while there. I'm disappointed in how shit has turned out for him.

    You cant rehab it if it is fully torn. You can live without a pcl but you will need your acl in the fight game. If his ACL is on partially torn then something can be done without surgery.

    I beleive his was partially torn before and he rehabbed it then he got a full tear during training for the lidel fight. Not sure lidel had a partial tear and I think frank had a couple of partial tears

    it's been 6 months and i only have about 50% of my strength back, but i had patellar graft, he could be up and running quicker then that if he gets a cadaver graft.

    Why didnt you go with the cadaver graft? I actually requested that, makes sense to me for the body to heal only once instead of twice.

    A good friend of mine did the patella tendon and then a few months later he jumped about 2 inches and he snapped his kneecap in half.

    Allografts (cadaver grafts) are the way to go.
    We get excellent results with them.
    You can live with a partially torn ACL but these guys compete at such high level that it's not a good idea to not have surgery.
