Jose Aldo: ‘I did my best but it wasn’t enough’


Ten days after a motorcyle accident, Jose Aldo felt intense pain in his foot, and had to stop training. His head coach Andre Pederneiras, determined that Aldo would not be able to face Frankie Edgar at UFC Rio.

“It’s been almost tem days Aldo suffered the motto accident and he should’ve gotten a lot better," explained Pederneiras. "His bruises should’ve healed but he got a swollen right foot and today, when he was on his first sparring training he couldn’t lean his foot on the floor because it hurt so much. Since he l want to fight Edgar, we tried to push him a little longer, but after the training we talked and realized he could not fight. We would like this fight to be postponed and that they keep Frankie as his opponent."

“I apologize to my fans for not being able to fight at UFC Rio, which is something I really wanted to do," said Aldo. "It was an amazing feeling to defend my belt here and it would be even better to do it again now against a guy like Frankie Edgar. I tried it all, did my best to be there in the Octagon but it was just no good enough. I hope UFC keeps him as my opponent and postpone our meeting because I really wanna fight him."

So he was riding a motorcycle? I thought they had contract stipulations where they weren't allowed to ride them. If that is the case that really sucks we don't get this fight just because he likes riding bikes.

Aldo is one of the most oft-injured fighters in the UFC. Sucks.

I don't want to see Aldo fight, if he's not fighting Frankie Edgar.

i think they should wait for this fight as well.shouldnt take aldo too long to recover and will give edgar extra time to train.
