Aldo out of UFC 125 co-main event

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Unfortunate news from @HeavyMMA re: Jose Aldo off 1/1 UFC. I’ve confirmed the injury: a compacted vertebrae caused tingling in both arms.

Aldo lost strength. His trainer made him take an MRI. News relayed to his management this morning. He’s out at least a month for therapy.

Hmm. Revise Aldo’s “out” to the fight’s in “jeopardy.” Aldo just told his management he will fight regardless. I’m not so sure that happens.

Returned home to an e-mail from Jose Aldo’s trainer Andre Pederneiras, who says “Junior” is officially out of UFC 125 w/ “neck disk” injury.
