Aldo: I'm done riding motorcyles

by Matt Erickson & John Morgan | source: mmajunkie.com
 

"No more motorbikes for me," Aldo on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com. "I'm young, so obviously I do mess up once in a while. But I learned my lesson, and I'm not going to ride (motorcycles) anymore."

Aldo said he's upset to not be fighting on the card, but he's ready to get back to the task at hand once he gets clearance.

"The sooner the better. As soon as the doctor says I can start working out again, I intend to do so. I'm ready, I'm recovered, but the doctor needs to say I can," he said. "The fight with Frankie was going to be a great fight – I was really looking forward to it. I got really excited when I signed the contract and I just want to go out and do it."

Amen! That's what I said in my first post, take it to the track or the dirt. Too many crazy drivers out there, no such thing as safe riding on the street

Well i am a little suprised. I might be the smarting thing to do for a professional athlete. But riding a bike ''responsible'' is still a option. Still i know how hard it is to keep yourself composed when your on one. Its a beautiful thing but it does carry some risks.   Anyways it seems like Dana finally has found a fighter in the old UFC mould aka doing whatever the UFC needs.

Is that avrg? 50% @ 1st, then after he makes big money, only take 30%? --Ed looks nasty. You JUST KNOW he stinks. Like michael moore. --JDS said he "asked him nicely" for everything he took except 10%. I bet by "nicely" he gave him the suge knight ultimatum - & held him out a 10stry window.

Ed Soaros or whatever. He makes silva look like a ducker, when silva has/will never ever duck. Machida's "silva money" shit...you know ed had him say that.-Brasillians, the MOST BUDO guys in the game are looking like cowards cuz of Ed. JDS got wise 2 him. Said ES was takin 30-50% of JDS's purse!

Rumours are a-flying in fighter's circles about his injury, tho. They are a-flying.--But, he called edgar out( altho this was when edgar said he'd never drop to fw), so i dont believe he did any shady shit. - -But if his manager is anything like andy/machida's...i wouldnt be all that suprised.

Most Ducati riders don't go any faster than Harley riders.Agree that saying motorcycles are for retards is retarded.

They aren't for retards, but it isn't the smartest/safest thing you can do with your free time. You are playing a numbers game everytime you go out, it's not the biker that is the problem, it's the thousands of cars around them that are busy texting, putting on makeup, eating, shaving, etc.. Like I said a chick just got hammered on a moped, doesn't matter what bike you're on or how fast it goes or how safe you drive it, ask any biker, you ride a bike, you will go down
