Ronnie left a message for his fans “Thank all of you guys for your thoughts and prayers. God is good all the time and I am living proof of that, continue to pray for me though guys. I’m doing this again August 13. These surgeries stem for all the hard work and dedication I’ve put in to win these 8 Mr Olympia titles and it was well worth it. If you drive a car and push it to the limit long and hard, sooner or later your gonna have to change the tires on it, so in relation to a car, this is what I’m doing. Yeah Buddy, Lightweight Baby, these hip replacements ain’t nothing but a peanut”

We at www.evolutionofbodybuilding.net wish you a speedy recovery champ!!
