Ryo Chonan updated his blog on May 29 and June 4th.
** May 29 **
I canceled my fight in UFC85. I apologize to my opponent, my staff and fans who support me. I injured my rib during my training. I wanted to fight if the pain is gone. However, my doctor requested me to rest. This is my first time to cancel. I will work hard to come back.
** June 4 **
As usual, I focused on my next fight and trained hard mentally and physically everyday. I tried to adjust myself to fight after breaking my rib. Although, I felt down because I couldn't do anything with pain when I tried to train. I was disappointed and felt drained for the next few days. Now I changed my mind and got to be ready to come back. Now I go gym everyday and I learn training menus and techniques objectively through coaching other fighters. I only have 5 more months to stay and don't want to waste of my time. I think RIKIX provided me a great environment. When my injury is cured, I will take time to develop my strikes. In addition, I will go to see MMA specialists who are everywhere in the U.S. I had fun playing wii, Mariocart at an electricity shop today. It was fun and will buy when I am home.
