Aldo uninjured after being hit on motorcycle by passing car
The UFC 153 headliner was reportedly traveling by motorcycle in Rio de Janeiro when he was struck by a passing car.
Fortunately for the champion (and UFC executives), Aldo walked away from the minor incident with only a few minor scratches and bruises, and the episode is not expected to impact his upcoming contest with former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (14-3-1 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC).
UFC officials were not immediately available for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com However, Brazilian outlet Tatame later confirmed UOL Esporte’s initial report.
“Yes, I had a motorcycle accident, but it was no big deal,” Aldo told UOL Esporte’s Mauricio Deho in his native Portuguese. “No, there’s no problem (about fighting Oct. 13). I’m going to the gym right now.”
