Jose Aldo out of UFC 133 Mendes fight due to AC suspension


Initial reports were that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has suffered an injury and was forced to withdraw from an August 6 bout with Chad Mendes. However, Aldo took to twitter to clarify:

"Let me be clear I'm not hurt again, I'm not hurt. I picked up a suspension the Canadian commission and therefore should only return to training 30 days this month. So once again, I'm not injured."

Read entire article...

After UFC 129 on April 30, the Ontario Athletic Commission suspendwed a number of fighters including Jose Aldo, for lacerations. Ironically, the UG suspension report also inlcuded a piece on fighters training under suspension, and that is precisely what did not happen here. Aldo took the suspension seriously, and reports he would not be training until May 30, which did not leave sufficient time to compete at the highest level on Aug 6.

He does however feel he will be rady by UFC 134 in Rio on August 27.

Mendes' manager Mike Roberts said Mendes is still looking for a bout at UFC 133.

Is Aldo injury prone or something? He had to pull out of his first fight in the UFC because of injury and he's doing it, wish these guys could stay healthy!!

The UFC won't sniff 500K buys until October. No shot at a big one until GSP fights in December. Dana talked too much, too soon. The next three-four cards are not special to the casual fans to buy and aren't loaded enough that the Hardcores are counting down the days. Last time UFC was in Philly? Forrest Griffin, Anderson Silva, BJ Penn, and Kenny Florian. This time? Rashad and Rich. Mmhmm. Yep. Sure.
