UFC 153 Hit With Injury Bug: Jose Aldo, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson Both Out Of Fights

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will not be facing Frankie Edgar in Brazil this October at UFC 153, as UFC president Dana White announced on Twitter Tuesday that Aldo has been forced off the card with an injury.

Also, White said that Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is out of a scheduled co-main event battle with Glover Teixeira.

It appears that the UFC is working on replacements.

    Man.. They just cant catch a break at the moment. I was so excited for both those fights. Bad for the UFC, even worse for the fans

    Faber vs Edgar, Maldonado vs Glover. Done!

    • Dana Becker

      That seems to be the consensus from the rumor mill, too:)

      I believe TKZ went ahead and had surgery on his shoulder (?), so he is likely out….

  • COME ON!

    Well fucking lovely….did jose aldo get hit by another car?

    This is why I don’t blame the UFC for putting on half ass events. It’s not Dana’s fault that every fighter in existence gets injured every five minutes.
